2012 Money and Banking Conference

Michael Stephens | October 8, 2012

Levy Institute scholars James Galbraith and Randall Wray presented at the annual conference held by the Central Bank of Argentina last week. Galbraith’s presentation began with the issue of the flexibility of central bank mandates and then turned to an account of the long-term evolution in the economy that prepared the groundwork for the recent global financial crisis. Randall Wray spoke on the theoretical and policy implications of a government’s ability to issue a sovereign currency.  Video and slides below the fold (full list of speakers here).

    Will there be transcripts of Galbraith’s and other talks?

    Michael, I think the second posted video is the same as the first, and that the middle section of speech is missing.
