Dear colleague,
The AWGF will be holding a symposium on Monday, 27th of July 2009 in the
MacCallum Cullen Rooms, Holme Building.
A Crisis Like No Other? : What¹s different about this financial crisis, and
how should that difference inform analysis and strategic responses?
There is much written and discussed about the origins and nature of the
current financial crisis. In reaction, there are many short-term and
longer-term proposals on the table. But to what extent are they Œstandard¹
responses to a Œstandard¹ characterization of a financial crisis, and to
what extent can they be seen as responses informed by the specificity of
this crisis? In this symposium, we look to explore the distinctiveness of
the current crisis, in both its Œfinancial¹ and Œsocial¹ dimensions, with
the object of debating regulatory and wider social responses to the crisis.
We are pleased and honoured to have special guests Professors Randy Martin
(NYU) and Geoff Mann (Simon Fraser Uni) presenting along with Dr Fiona Allon
(USYD), Professor John Roberts (USYD), Dr Martijn Konings (USYD), Dr Melinda
Cooper (USYD), Professor Dick Bryan (USYD), Dr Mike Rafferty (USYD) and
Stephen Long (ABC Radio and Television, Current Affairs).
Registration is FREE for AWGF members and USYD staff ­ bookings will be
