Implications of the Bubble Economy
Ayres Bubble Economy Book CoverRobert Ayres, Professor Emeritus of Economics INSEAD, France
Monday, November 17, 4:00-5:30pm
CHANGE OF LOCATION: Mugar 231, 160 Packard Ave, Medford, MA

The global economy has become increasingly, perhaps chronically, unstable. Since 2008, we have heard about the housing bubble, subprime mortgages, banks "too big to fail," financial regulation (or the lack of it), and the European debt crisis. What we haven't heard much about is the role of natural resources – energy in particular – as drivers of economic growth, or the connection of "global warming" to the economic crisis. Robert Ayres, an economist and physicist, will discuss his new book, which connects economic instability to the economics of energy. Ayres’ talk will describe the roots of our bubble economy and offer a new approach to economic growth.
