Sir Vince Cable discusses economy in Warwick Policy Lab guest lectureMonday 18 Jan 2016
On Tuesday 12th January 2016, Sir Vince Cable visited Warwick to give a talk on whether we are heading for a fresh economic crisis.
Sir Vince Cable, a British politician who was the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation, and Skills from 2010 to 2015, discussed the 2008 financial crisis, referring to himself as the “Politician in opposition in the beginning of the financial crisis”.
He then went on to offer his thoughts on the current economic environment and turned to the “four legacies” that he saw prevailing in the current economic environment; substantial deleveraging, gigantic banking system, corporate finance and housing price rise.
Following the lecture, audience members were able to ask their questions in a Q&A session, and Sir Vince Cable also partook in a signing for his book ‘After the Storm’; a retrospect evaluating the dramatic economic event of the 2008 financial crisis 7 years later and estimating the point the economy has reached since then.
