Fed Power: the politics of central banks after the US presidential election

In this podcast, Professor Desmond King, Andrew W Mellon Professor of American Government at Nuffield College, and co-author Professor Lawrence Jacobs, University of Minnesota, explore the themes of their book Fed Power: How Finance Wins in discussion with Professor David Soskice, Professor of Political Science and Economics at LSE.

These themes include the implications of the US presidential election for the future of the United States Federal Reserve bank—and the broader financial system—and the possibility of another US financial crisis in the absence of a strong central bank.
