Video and Audio Lectures in Specific economies or countries
Video, Audio and text transcript from a public lecture given 17 November 2015 at the LSE by the Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland.
"After a long run of seeming prosperity, the financial crisis left Ireland’s banks more under water and its public and private balance sheets in greater disarray than in most other Western European countries. Since then, the painful processes of bank restructuring and fiscal adjustment, partly under the protection of an IMF-EU financial support arrangement, have revealed much about the domestic and international political economy of debt and austerity."
Howard Davies sits on the International advisory councils of the China banking and securities regulatory commissions. In this lecture from October 2008, he is in in conversation with Professor Danny Quah from the LSE. Davies reviews the progress of reform in China’s financial markets, and the implications for the rest of the world. The conversation is available as a 90 minute audio podcast (mp3) with the accompanying website providing speaker notes and PowerPoint slides.
As China takes its place among the world’s richest economies, economic growth in the long run will endure only if innovation and technology capabilities ramp up dramatically. How will this happen? Danny Quah of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) discusses this topic in this 70 minute audio (mp3) lecture, recorded in 2007.
