Between Debt and the Devil: Money, Credit, and Fixing Global Finance by Adair Turner

Wednesday November 4 at 12:30 PM in J1-050 Auditorium (World Bank J Bldg; 701 18th Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20433)

This book challenges the belief that private credit is essential to growth and fiat money is inevitably dangerous. The author argues that debt needs to be taxed as a form of economic pollution because most credit is not needed for economic growth and just drives real estate booms and busts and leads to financial crisis and depression. The author also debunks the big myth about fiat money—the erroneous notion that printing money will lead to harmful inflation. He believes that policy makers need to monetize government debt and finance fiscal deficits with central-bank money to overcome the mess that is created by past policy errors. For more information click here

Saudi Arabia in Transition: Insights on Social, Political, Economic and Religious Change

Wednesday November 11 at 12:30 PM in J1-050 Auditorium (World Bank J Bldg; 701 18th Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20433)

Saudi Arabia, the heart of Islam with its two holiest mosques in Mecca and Medina, is the US’s closest Arab ally and largest global oil producer. Its aged leadership, however, is ceding to new generations dominated by youth and new access. Saudi has long remained closed to foreign scholars with few allowed into the kingdom until recently. This book presents the fruits of those researchers recently given access combined with the most prominent Saudi scholars to provide new research and insights on Saudi’s social, cultural, economic and political dynamics. For more information click here
