PANEL: Annual Conference of the Dutch-Belgian Society for Eighteenth Century Studies, 2021: Making Sense of Finance - Prof. Catherine Schenk
Catherine Schenk will participate in a panel hosted by the Netherlands Central Bank with Paul Koster (Managing Director Dutch Investors’ Association) and Jan Barend Jansen (Former Assistant General Counsel International Monetary Fund).

How can finance reconnect to different publics, including by utilizing the ‘lessons learned’ from previous crises in 1929 and 2007?
