End this Depression Now. Paul Krugman at the LSE May 29th

Paul Krugman, the recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics and best-selling author, columnist and blogger for The New York Times will be speaking at the London School of Economics as part of their public lecture series.

From the LSE: “The Great Recession is more than four years old—and counting. Yet, “Nations rich in resources, talent, and knowledge—all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all—remain in a state of intense pain.”

In his new book, End This Depression Now! which he will discuss in this event Krugman shows how the failure of regulation to keep pace with an increasingly out-of-control financial system positioned the United States and the world as a whole, for the greatest financial crisis since the 1930s. Decrying the tepid response thus far, he lays out the steps that must be taken to free ourselves and turn around a world economy stagnating in deep recession. His is a powerful message: a strong recovery is only one step away, if our leaders find the intellectual clarity and political will to see it through.”
