After The Recession: We're Not The Same

The Great Depression lasted a dozen years in the United States, and was only replaced by World War II.  The Great Recession of 2008 ended a lot sooner.  Didn't it? 

Historian Adam Tooze takes a long, hard look at the more recent financial crisis and its causes, and even questions whether it's fully over. 

He also traces a number of world events--the rise of China, Brexit, and the election of Donald Trump--to the recession and its aftermath.  Tooze's book is Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World.  The author visits as his book hits the market.
