In 1982, 1997, 2003 and 2008, Asia and the world were rocked by major financial crises. Professor Aliber discussed past crises and the possible trajectory of the next one. Where is the next major crisis likely to begin? How will its impact compare to previous crises?
Professor Aliber, a regular speaker for Chicago Booth, co-authored MANIAS, PANICS, and CRASHES – A History of Financial Crises, an outstanding book for policymakers and investors that was selected by the Financial Times and puts the turbulence of the financial world in perspective.
