Podcast: Central banks in the time of crisis

The New Statesman’s World Review podcast with Jeremy Cliffe and Emily Tamkin.  

By NS Podcasts

On this week’s episode of World Review from the New Statesman, Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin and Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC are joined, from New York, by Adam Tooze, history professor at Columbia University and author of Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World. They discuss the role of central banks in the coronavirus crisis (and the climate crises to come), the unhelpful lure of austerity, and, in You Ask Us, take your questions on whether the dollar’s days as the world’s default reserve currency are numbered.

Send us your questions for future episodes via Twitter @statesmanworld and read more of Adam Tooze’s writing here.
