Topic: Does Keynesian Stimulus Work During a Global Financial Crisis?
With several of the world’s largest economies fraught with debt or low growth, government action plans and rescue packages have dominated recent headlines. But is this sort of government intervention actually effective? Larry Summers, one of the world’s most renowned financial experts and a former advisor to President Barack Obama, will answer this question as part of a special lecture at the University of Calgary.
