Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator at the Financial Times, and one of the world’s most influential writers on economics, will answer these questions in Oslo on the 18th of February. Based on his latest book “The Shifts and the Shocks”, Wolf will present his analysis of the economic course of the last seven years. Wolf identifies the origin of the crisis in the complex interaction between globalization, hugely destabilizing global imbalances and our dangerously fragile financial system, and argues that “further crises seem certain”. In his presentation, Wolf will give his view on what the crisis should teach us and what radical reforms will be necessary for a more stable future.

The meeting is free and open for all. Light refreshments will be served.
