Sarvy, Carlos, Jenn, and Scott, are joined by James Ashley Morrison, Assistant Professor in the Department of International Relations at the London School of Economics. The conversation is focused on Professor Morrison's forthcoming book on the history of the gold standard. Topics include the roles that J. M. Keynes and Winston Churchill played in Britain's return to the gold standard in 1925, the political-economic significance of the gold standard, the relationship between the disciplines of political economy and IPE (International Political Economy), and Professor Morrison's approach to writing history.
