Event Details

You are invited to a special evening with Robert Z. Aliber, Professor Emeritus at Chicago Booth and an expert on global economics. Professor Aliber will be introduced by Professor Emiel Van Broekhoven.

Professor Aliber has written extensively about exchange rates, and international financial and banking relationships and policy problems. He is a co-author of Money, Banking, and the Economy, Manias, Panics, and Crashes: A History of Financial Crises, and author of The International Money Game.

Professor Aliber probes the sequence of four waves of crises that have involved more than forty countries since the early 1980s and shows that implosions of their banking systems do not follow from the decisions of 'bad actors' but instead are symptomatic of a dysfunctional international monetary arrangement.
