In episode #372, recorded at the 72nd CFA Institute Annual Conference in London, Adam Tooze, a professor of history and director of the European Institute at Columbia University, discusses his most recent book, Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World. Crashed has been described as “an eye-opening reinterpretation of the 2008 financial crisis and its aftermath, leading to the political shock waves you are feeling in the world today." In this short conversation, Professor Tooze discusses his main purpose in writing the book, connects the dots from 2008 to Brexit, and reflects on whether the global financial system is more resilient now.
