  1. Niall Ferguson: A Checkup on Global Financial Health

    http://www.onpointradio.org/2010/06/niall-ferguson-a-checkup-on-global-financial

    Bigfoot historian Niall Ferguson made his name with a fearless readiness to speak to history and our moment in it in the biggest terms.

    If you want to talk about the rise and fall of empires – Roman, American, British, Soviet – Ferguson’s your man. Now he’s followed history right into the middle of a raging debate over whether we need more stimulus spending right now, or need to slam on the spending brakes to avoid a system collapse.

    Ferguson’s a hit-the-brakes man. He dukes it out with Paul Krugman

  2. What Next? Surviving the 21st Century

    The list of challenges facing the world is proliferating rapidly from climate change to nuclear proliferation and nobody seems to have much of a grip on what is going on. In this public dialogue hosted by Global Policy, a new innovative and interdisciplinary journal, Chris Patten and Professor David Held will discuss what we know in each of these areas and how progress can be made.

  3. On Point: Assessing the American Future (with Simon Schama and Niall Ferguson)

    The British know something about rise and fall. Their Edward Gibbon wrote The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Their own empire came and went.

    Now, two big British historians and thinkers who live in the United States are thinking hard about the American future.

    Simon Schama says he’s in love with America, and sees the makings of potential renewal emerging right now. Niall Ferguson admires America too, and sees — even so — the makings of disaster around us.
