Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

Replay of the financial crisis of 2008? What is different today, and what to expect?
"For some days, global financial markets are in turmoil. Central banks and governments are dealing with the unfolding crisis on a daily basis with seemingly unprecedented measures."
In this webinar, Adam Tooze, professor of History at Columbia University, is in discussion with Gerhard Schick, CEO of Bürgerbewegung Finanzwende and a former member of the German parliament. Adam Tooze is a widely recognized expert on Economic History and Economic Crises.
Comment from our editors:
The 20 minutes Keynote by Adam Tooze provides you with a concise overview of this unprecedented, multi-faceted crisis as well as the connection with the financial crisis of 2008. You will learn about how financial markets and the dollar-based international monetary system work during such a crisis. Importantly, they also take a good look at the historic rush of funding out of emerging markets. During the Panel Discussion and Q & A with attendees a number of other relevant topics are discussed.
