The World That Panics MadeThe World That Panics Made
"The World That Panics Made" with Legum Professor of History, Scott Nelson.
Full Description
When did America see a complex chain of debt linking risky consumer loans with fragile banks? That was 2008, but it was also 1819, 1837, 1857, and 1893. Legum Professor of History Scott Reynolds Nelson will show how America's history has been filled with stories about failing loans, broken banks, fractured families, and partisan finger-pointing. He'll outline what panics are, how to predict them, and how they have radically reshaped American politics.
