If you’ve ever wondered about the 2008 financial crisis and the ensuing “Great Recession,” you’re not alone. It’s not hard to point fingers at banks, financial institutions, and regulators—but do you know the underlying causes of financial crises?

In our new On Demand program, Financial Crises and Government, we team up with professors like Stephen Davies and Tyler Cowen to explore the recurring pattern of government financial regulation that ultimately creates environments that result in financial crises and panics.

After this program, you’ll better understand:

  • the history of financial mayhem caused by government intervention
  • the effectiveness of stimulus spending
  • the Austrian theory of booms and busts
  • the government response to the 2008 financial crisis
  • the Great Recession, and more.
