The History Man

Recommended Posts

I found this a fascinating historical perspective and a great listen:

This week on Global Business Peter Day is in conversation with Professor Niall Ferguson of Harvard University, historian and author. He tells Peter Day why the world is in debt commensurate with those brought about in World War II and the decline of the economic power of the western world.

The blog is a good summary too:

A tad bullish in places - but nowhere near as clueless as the academic on Newsnight the other night.

Listened to it a few days ago.

From what I recall, Ferguson is in the "saved the world" camp and believes that a second Great Depression has been averted.
