Friday October 23rd 6pm – Customs House Circular Quay
Leading US financial economist and historian Professor Michael Hudson will be touring Australia in October. Along wth CPD Fellow Steve Keen, Hudson was one of twelve economists recognised for predicting the GFC. He is also a former Wall Street financial analyst, Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri and author of ‘Global Fracture – The New International Economic Order’ (2005). Hudson is President of The Institute for the Study of Long-Term Economic Trends (ISLET), which researches domestic and international finance, national income and balance-sheet accounting with regard to real estate.
Professor Hudson is fast gaining a reputation in policy circles as a go-to man in GFC hotspots, visiting Iceland and Latvia a number of times this year to provide assistance on economy policy. He has written or edited over ten books on international finance, economic history and the history of economic thought, worked as a balance-of-payments economist for Chase Manhattan Bank and Arthur Andersen, and has been an economic advisor to the U.S., Canadian, Mexican and other governments and United Nations agencies, as well as to international corporations and money managers.
Professor Hudson’s visit and speaking tour will be an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas about how we can avoid future crashes on the scale of the GFC and ensure more sustainable financial systems.
