    Failing Banks

    Failing Banks

    Why do banks fail? What are the characteristics of banks that fail? Are these consistently the same over the course of history? Emil Verner (MIT) says yes, there are some commonalities all US banks that failed in the last 160 years share; moreover he claims that bank failures are quite predictable. Why then don't we prevent most bank failures? Or shouldn't we after all?

    Zombie Currency

    Zombie Currency

    In this episode Maylis Avaro (Penn University) and Carmen Hofmann (eabh) discuss the international role of Sterling during the Bretton Woods era. Maylis claims that after 1945, the collective interests of the members of the sterling zone (stability of trade, free flow of capital, freer trade, access to London markets) were little compared to the cost of having UK authorities using the currency as a means of political domination.



    Tune in and listen to a fascinating story of currency, empire & independence!

    A Marshall Plan for Ukraine?

    A Marshall Plan for Ukraine?

    Volker Berghahn (Columbia) & Carmen Hofmann (eabh) talk about European reconstruction after World War I, World War II and the Ukrainian War of today. Why was the reconstruction effort after 1945 so much more successful than the endeavours in the interwar years?

    How should global aid be given? Does private or public money serve the matter better? Which should come first? Loans or grants? Do we need peace to rebuild? Who should guarantee for the money given? Who will profit? Volker and Carmen discuss these questions and try to look closely at the roadmap history could provide for Ukrainian reconstruction in the future.
