Britain has voted to leave the EU since 2016 and yet, political elites seem to have opted for delay tactics to undermine people’s choice.

Three years ago the British people took a detour and opted to take the freeway to freedom. They voted to leave the European Union and reassert their national sovereignty and protect their traditional liberties. Since then the elites have sought to undermine the outcome of that vote and force Britain to continue to be tied to the apron strings of the European Union.

Join us for an interactive seminar with Tom Ballou to discuss what choices lie ahead for Britain as wells as their social and economic implications.

    MONETARY POLICY, ASSET INFLATION AND INEQUALITY

    Thu, June 17, 2021 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT


    In this webinar, Pr. Louis Philippe Rochon takes a fresh look at the links between monetary policy, asset bubbles and inequality.

    It is often argued that asset inflation and real estate bubbles are the result of accommodative monetary policy: low interest rates encourages borrowing for speculative purposes.

    Undoubtedly, this has been the case as an increasing part of borrowing is not meant for productive purposes.

    In this webinar, Prof. Rochon will argue that this is a misreading of the facts. Rather than laying the blame at the feet of low interest rates, bubbles may be caused by growing inequality as well as by the excessive deregulation.

    Learn why governments need to re-regulate borrowing and, introduce such policies as financial transaction taxes to prevent asset inflation and specifically real estate bubbles.

    A link to join the online seminar will be provided via email before the start of the webinar.
