Realeconomik: The Hidden Cause of the Great Recession (and How to Avert the Next One)


LSE public lecture

Former deputy prime minister of Russia and free-market economist Grigory Yavlinsky makes a powerful case that the often-cited causes of global economic instability – institutional failings, wrong decisions by regulators, insufficient or incorrect information – are only secondary to a far more significant underlying cause: the failure to understand that universal social norms are essential to thriving businesses and to social and economic progress. Yavlinksy explores the widespread disregard for moral values in business decisions and calls for restoration of principled behaviour in politics and economic practices.

This event marks the publication of Grigory Yavlinsky's new book 'Realeconomik: The Hidden Cause of the Great Recession and How to Avert the Next One'.

Grigory Yavlinsky is a Russian economist, professor of economics at the Higher School of Economics at the National Research University in Moscow, and founder and member of the Russian United Democratic Party (YABLOKO). As deputy prime minister of Russia in 1990, he wrote the first Russian economic program for transition to a free-market economy, 500 Days.
