2-4 October 2009, IIRE, Amsterdam
The purpose of the seminar is to analyse the nature and the consequences of the present international economic crisis. Two main issues should be raised:
- What is the nature of the present crisis? Is it a classical economic crisis of capitalism? Or is it a new kind of economic crisis due to the peculiar role of finance? A crisis of financialised capitalism? Are there solid reasons to believe that it will be as dramatic as 1929 or not?
