Join Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times, as he discusses the most complete account of what the crisis should teach us about modern economies and economics. His book, The Shifts and the Shocks, identifies the origin of the crisis in the complexities between globalization, destabilizing global imbalances and the fragile financial system. In the eurozone, these instabilities were multiplied by the defective architecture of the monetary union. The crisis shows how much of the orthodoxy shaping monetary and financial policy was complacent and wrong and reveals the failures of the financial, political and intellectual elites who ran the system.
