Kennan Forum - A Modest Proposal: Escaping Austerity and Debt

Internationally-renowned scholar James Galbraith will discuss austerity -- the current go-to economic policy prescription for governments across the globe. Why are public institutions in crisis when many economies, including our own, are actually bigger than ever? Galbraith will be joined by Greek economist and co-author, Yanis Varoufakis.
