This episode of the American Academy in Berlin’s “Beyond the Lecture” features an interview with University of California Berkeley economist Barry Eichengreen. A distinguished academic expert on the international monetary and financial systems, Eichengreen is also a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a research fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research in London. He was at the Academy this past December to deliver the semester’s Kurt Viermetz Lecture, “The Populist Turn in American Politics.” We sat down with him to talk about populism’s roots in economics and what the future may hold for the euro, free trade, and American domestic policy.
