Since the Wall Street Crash in 1929, financial meltdowns have repeatedly sent shockwaves through our world. From the currency crises of the 1980s and 1990s, to Japan’s housing crash, the dot com boom and bust, the global financial meltdown, the euro crisis and the COVID pandemic.
In May 2023, economist Linda Yueh came to Intelligence Squared to tell the stories of these historic events and what we can learn from them. Drawing from her new book The Great Crashes, Yueh will explain how economies managed to recover and reveal a three step framework to help recognise the early signs of a crash and try to prevent it from happening at all. Yueh warned about where the next crash might come from and shows how to prepare and prevent them.
