History of the Business Cycle

Hi all,

 In recent weeks we examined the causes of the booms and busts that seem to be becoming more frequent. We spent time examining The Great Depression and the role of the Central Banks at that time. But a good question asked by some in those seminars was whether there were booms and busts before central banks were created.

The answer to this requires a study of history and specifically of the history of business cycles in the United States. So in tonights seminar we will look back in time to see what we can learn from the past. While the examples will be based on US history,  virtually all the same things can be said about the UK and NZ. We will discuss what lessons we in New Zealand can take from the US experience.

Time: 6:00pm

Date: Tuesday 20 September

Location: Case Room 1, Level 0,

University of Auckland Business School

Look forward to seeing you tonight.
