Professor Lawrence White - The Clash of Economic Ideas

  • Jul 2, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


For this meeting we're lucky enough to have the company of Professor Lawrence White, who is visiting Australia to promote his new book.  He is a Professor of Economics at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, USA. Professor White specialises in monetary theory and banking history. He is best known for his research on free banking, which finds that free-market monetary arrangements are stable and efficient. He also works on the history of economic thought. His presentation will offer highlights from his latest book, The Clash of Economic Ideas: The Great Policy Debates and Experiments of the Last Hundred Years (Cambridge University Press, 2012), which has been described as "one of those rare books that makes the history of economic thought an intellectual adventure while remaining highly relevant to the issues and controversies of the present day." Professor White received his B.A. from Harvard and his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles. He has been a Visiting Professor at Queen's University Belfast, a visiting lecturer at the Swiss National Bank, a visiting scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, and Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University.

We'll have a Q&A session after Professor White's presentation, and after which members are encourage to continue discussions amongst themselves.   A selection of platters of food will be provided, and the venue will be selling drinks.

There will be small cost for this event ($10), to cover the venue hire and food, which will be collected when you arrive.

Hope to see you all there.

    This was a good talk. I thought there could have been more comparison to the Australian situation but the questions showed that we had a sophisticated audience who could make their own assessments.

    Excellent presentation that could have gone on all night given Lawrence's knowledge and life experiences at top levels of academia and the US political process.
