Lecture by Professor Peter Gourevitch on the Global Financial Crisis 2008 at the Gaidar Forum

On January 11, Peter Alexis Gourevitch, Professor, the University of California, held a unique lecture within the Gaidar Forum 2017.

The key subject of the meeting was the global financial crisis 2008, which, according to the speaker, has been the worst in the history of the global economy since 1930.

During the discussion, Peter Gourevitch repeatedly mentioned the severe consequences for the economy of Russia, Europe, the United States and the whole world: mass unemployment, global slowdown in the economy, liquidity crisis of global banks, etc. The Professor believes that the main problem of such economic situation was in an uncontrolled growth of questions and a critical shortage of answers to solve them.

In the course of the lecture Professor paid special attention to the actions taken by U.S. politicians, and then drew a parallel with the anti-crisis measures taken by the German Government.
