Regarded as one of the world's most respected economists, Kenneth Rogoff reaches beyond the theoretical and delivers quantitative proof from his frequently cited research and best-selling book to explain why our financial history continues to repeat itself-and just where the US and global economies are heading.
Recipient of numerous academic honors and prizes, Kenneth Rogoff delivers unique and topical analyses of the economy in the US and around the globe as he examines the shifts of economic power, the sovereign debt crises and the role monetary policy will have in our future.
Rogoff is the author of The Curse of Cash, which Ben Bernanke called “a fascinating and important book." The Curse of Cash is the culmination of Rogoff’s work analyzing how countries can creatively deal with large public and private debt overhangs, articulating the advantages of eliminating paper currency and replacing it with cryptocurrencies, and explaining why the world is still mainly suffering from a debt super-cycle, not secular stagnation.
Drawing from his experience as the chief economist for the International Monetary Fund and as an economist for the Federal Reserve, Rogoff clearly and brilliantly explains the complexities of the economy to diverse audiences, inspiring a new appreciation for macroeconomics and its impact on our current and future financial well-being.
This Time is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly
The current and sustained economic headwinds affecting the global economy struck many by surprise after a long stretch of unbridled growth. Kenneth Rogoff argues that quantitatively, the global economy is driving down the tracks of previous deep financial crises. A universally respected economist, advisor to governments and Harvard professor of economics, Rogoff lends his unparalleled insights to help organizations understand the multifaceted problems we face as a global economy. In a highly accessible presentation that draws on the research and findings behind his widely celebrated, best-selling book This Time is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly, he and his co-author Carmen Reinhart leverage more than eight hundred years' worth of trends to demonstrate what businesses should have seen on the horizon. He challenges his audience to consider that the solution we're currently implementing may in fact be the catalyst for tomorrow's financial crisis. Recovering from today's financial crisis involves more than revitalizing our economy for the moment; it also means addressing the structural impediments to long-term growth and stability.
