Event description

Description

Upheavals in how the U.S. economy operates have transformed Americans from wealth creators to creative borrowers. This course looks at how abandoning the Gold Standard, a bulwark of the world economy since the Industrial Revolution, has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption. Will this revolutionary shift usher in a new era of growth or lead to yet another wave of cyclical depressions? What is the role of land in this process? This five-lesson course will highlight structural changes to the U.S. economy since the demise of the World War II-spawned financial order, also known as the Bretton Woods system.
