FT has an article today on Christine Lagarde’s warning
about a 30s style depression and that
faces the prospect of “economic retraction, rising protectionism, isolation and . . . what happened in the 30s [Depression]”
The video is below. Lagarde’s speech starts at 13:00 and ends at 25:25
Lagarde rightly stresses the “vast interconnectedness” between all economies and that that the crisis can be resolved only by all countries taking action.
Gillian Tett of FT wrote a bio of Christine Lagarde recently. It has more about her shoes than economics.
