In this 45-minute lecture, Berkeley economics professor Brad Delong gives a concise account of the genesis of the current US financial crisis, and presents some reason to hope that we may be on our way out. In his view, the way forward may possibly be an export boom aided by the sinking value of the dollar. Along with the MP3 audio file, Professor DeLong has posted the visual slides that accompany the presentation.
