- I am delighted to be here this evening. This is my first visit to Argentina and I am honored to be invited by the Catholic University of Argentina. I will talk about the world crisis from a Keynesian point of view, and my lecture will be divided into three parts: why did it start?; what should we be doing about it?; and what steps can we take to prevent something like this from happening again. So I will deal with “origin”, “recovery” and “reform”. Because of the speed of the recovery in this part of the world my diagnosis and prescriptions might at first glance seem less relevant to Argentina and Latin America than to Europe and the United States. But Latin America’s recovery is mainly based on rising commodity prices and commodity prices are, partly determined by what happens to the rest of the world. In a globalized world each country fate is bound up with the fate of its neighbors. Bringing about a global recovery, therefore, is in the interest of all, whether in South America or Southern Europe.
