Back to the Economic Future
Adam Posen, External Member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the Bank of England, recently gave a speech to the Royal Institute for International Affairs, which has just been published at the Bank of England website (here). In it, he mounts an interesting argument about the relevance of the late nineteenth century for understanding the global political-economic picture both currently and for the next 10-20 years. Interesting stuff.
