Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy

Raghuram G. Rajan, Eric J. Gleacher Distinguished Service Professor of Finance


Join professor Raghuram Rajan as he talks about his new book, Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy. The discussion will cover how the individual choices that collectively brought about the economic meltdown were rational responses to a flawed global financial order in which the incentives to take on risk are incredibly out of step with the dangers those risks pose.

Rajan will discuss how unequal access to education and health care in the United States is eroding the quality of its policymaking, even while the growth paths chosen by large countries like Germany, Japan, and now China place an undue burden on the United States to get its policies right. He outlines the hard choices we need to make to ensure a more stable world economy and restore lasting prosperity.

Price includes a copy of Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy.
