UNDERSTANDING THE BOOM-BUST CYCLE

This course looks at how repealing the Gold Standard has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption.

Upheavals in how the U.S. economy operates have transformed Americans from wealth creators to creative borrowers. This course looks at how the repeal of the Gold Standard, a bulwark of the world economy since the Industrial Revolution, has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption. We will look at how this change, combined with an unprecedented wave of deregulation has caused a disconnect between speculative finance and the real economy, massive inequality and systemic instability.

We strongly recommend that participants familiarize themselves with the material before the beginning of classes.
