The Griffith and Patricia Way Lecture 2017

The 20th century was the most inflationaru century in history. Already the 21st century looks different. Japan is where the 20th-century inflation first ended, when the great bubble deflated in the 1990s. After Japan's bubble came the collapse of global financial bubbles centered on New York and London. Metzler shows why there is more defletion to come and how this is a historical turning point on a scale not of decades, but of centuries. Join us in welcoming Mark Metzler in his first public lecture at the university, and as he begins his tenure with the UW as professor of history this coming autumn.

This event is sponsore by the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies and the UW Japan Studies Program and made possible by the Griffith and Patricia Way Endowment. For information contact or 206.685.9997
