Bubbles & Politics: China, 1857, 1929
September 18 -19, 2015
The Conference Participants met at the Leir Retreat in Ridgefield, CT that was formerly the estate of Henry J. Leir to discuss over two days various research presentations related to some issues and concerns that have arisen from an apparent increase since the 1970s of financial bubbles and their impact not only on the global financial system but also politics. The topics covered ranged from the consequences of a dramatically slowing Chinese economy to the historical political and social consequences of major financial crises.
