Money View Symposium

Perry Mehrling over the past decades in building on the British and American central banking schools has developed what he calls the ‘money view’. While economics and finance have oddly abstracted from the concept of money in order to focus on other problems, this minority view focuses on money and credit for what it is: a set of interlocking promises to pay and how these promises get settled. The money view therefore is in a unique position to restart a conversation between economics and finance, as well as theory and practice.

Now, ten years after the publication of New Lombard Street and eight years after the initial launch of the MOOC, many of us have studied the money view and used it as an analytical lens in our work, be it in economics, law, international political economy or adjacent disciplines. This symposium welcomes you all back in order to share your research, projects, and work that have been inspired by the course.

The Money View Symposium hosted by YSI will showcase work of scholars and practitioners that make use of the money view. We have a particular interest in showcasing how the money view has been applied and further developed not only in economics but also in other disciplines such as law, international political economy and the social science at larges.

If you have ever taken the course, or are thinking about it, please make sure to drop in!

You can find the recording here.

12:00 ET Fireside Chat with Lee Buchheit (University of Miami) on Sovereign Debt
moderated by Maria C. Schweinberger

The practice of sovereign debt restructuring is a perfect example of how the characteristics of money and credit as described in the Money View literature, namely hierarchy, hybridity and (non-)enforceability of private contracts, come to play in the real world. During this conversation with sovereign debt restructuring veteran Lee C. Buchheit we will explore whether an emerging markets debt crisis is looming, what can be done and how sovereign debt markets have evolved over the last 40 years.

2:00pm ET Fireside Chat with Perry Mehrling
moderated by Asgeir B. Torfason

The discussion will trace the intellectual foundations through Perry’s personal story in the trail of his education and the research path behind the writings in order to better understand the historical and theoretical development and the practical platform the course has created.
