With Georges Ugeux

Join Georges Ugeux as he presents La Descente aux enfers de la finance, his new book on the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis and a critical analysis of the role of central banks.

The financial crisis came as a shock to those who were unfamiliar with the highly technical and opaque workings of our financial system. Central banks managed to keep the system afloat, but government debts keep growing and citizens risk becoming collateral damage of a system they have no control over. Georges Ugeux’s book warns us against a possible financial earthquake, and explores what can be done to avoid it.

The event will be in French.


Georges Ugeux is a professor at Columbia University School of Law, where he teaches international finance. For seven years, he was also vice-president of the New York Stock Exchange.
