Videos on the financial crisis

Below is a video, the quality of which is unfortunately not too good, of Kevin Dowd giving a talk on the financial crisis. The talk was delivered as the Chris Tame Memorial Lecture for the UK's Libertarian Alliance. The introduction of the speaker, which can be skipped, lasts until 7:05. The entire video including Q&A lasts 1:16:37

Below is an short interview, from Reason.tv, with John B. Taylor, professor of economics at Stanford University in which Taylor challenges the conventional wisdom that it was an excess of deregulation that precipitated our current financial crisis. In fact, he says, the exact opposite is true.

Nice posts, thank you. I like Mr. Taylor's ideas very much. He seems like a very smart man and his explanation seems rational and well thought of. I will have to check out his book, looks very interesting. Thanks again.

Take care, Elli
