A talk by Sharat G. Lin

Dr. Lin predicted the coming of the debt and banking crisis in an article written in 1990 for Economic and Political Weekly (Mumbai). Since that time deregulation has vastly increased risk and opacity in the world financial system, exacerbating the current crisis and necessitating drastic change. Find out why the Wall Street bailout fails to deal with the root cause of the meltdown, may not work, and could cost far more. What will it take to really solve the crisis?

Sharat G. Lin is with the San José Peace & Justice Center. He writes on global political economy, the Middle East, India, and labor migration.
