Cornel Ban and the political economy of crises
Cornel Ban co-directs The Global Economic Governance Initiative at the Frederick S. Pardee Center of the University of Boston. I happened to co-direct "The Financial Governance Initiative" of FONDAD and other organizations in the years prior to the current crisis. Our focus was on how future crises could be prevented...
I found it very interesting and stimulating to hear Cornel Ban's views. He is currently completing a book manuscript on the political economy of crises, with a focus on the role of economic ideas and the interaction between international and domestic actors. I will report on some of Ban's views in a next post after having listened to the recording of our conversation.
