History and Causes of the Business Cycle

What causes the boom & bust cycle and can we prevent it?

As the US economy advances deep into the current property-market led economic turmoil, this course will present an in-depth analysis of the history and causes of business cycles. The 5-week lecture series will draw on the work of economists and public policy experts on the potential mitigating effects of governmental interventions and propose changes in taxation and public policy.
