Bonus - The Currency of Politics, Ep. 3 w/ Stefan Eich
A podcast from Daniel Bessner and Derek Davison that provides listeners with everything they need to know about what’s going on in the world.
Danny and Derek welcome back Stefan Eich, assistant professor of government at Georgetown University, to continue their conversation of the politics of money. After touching on the gold standard as it existed in the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as the paper money/specie relationship at the time, the crew gets into the work of John Maynard Keynes. They talk about his response to the Treaty of Versailles, his time at the UK’s India Office, his focus on central banks, the Second Thirty Years War, and more.
