This is the video taken at the Radisson Golden Lane in which Kevin O’Rourke of TCD delivered a talk about ‘The Great Depression to the Great Credit Crisis, similarities, differences and lessons’. It is a great video, well worth watching if you weren’t able to attend the event.
You can watch the whole playlist here. Or go to the Irish CFA channel on youtube and check out the follow on videos, there are six in total, the questions and answer section is particularly interesting to anybody who may have an interest in financial regulation and some of the pitfalls of it, Stephens thoughts are quite refreshing to the normal solutions you’ll hear (although I don’t agree with them all!).
