Peter Jonson: Historic crashes and why this one is different

On Monday July 6th, Dr Peter Jonson will be our tour guide to some of the great crises of capitalism, and why this one is different (but perhaps not so different). Join us online for this installment of AIP’s COVID19 Seminar Series as we do a retrospective on past failures, and a prospective on how they apply today.

Peter Jonson has been an economist, a central banker, a merchant banker, and a company director and combines all of that knowledge, experience and understanding with his flair with a pen in his book Great Crises of Capitalism.

This is another in the AIP’s COVID19: Causes, Consequences, and Cures Seminar Series and will give you a better understanding of the the likely causes (beyond government action) and consequences of the economic recession we face now.

Peter Jonson is a lifetime monetary economics tragic and as a young man held a number of senior positions as an economist with the Reserve Bank of Australia. From 1982 to 1988, Peter reached the giddy heights as Chief Economist, then called Head of Research. After a dust up with the then Treasurer, Paul Keating, Peter moved to corporate life, including stints as Head of Research at James Capel Australia Limited, Group Managing Director of Norwich Union Financial Services Ltd and Chairman of ANZ Funds Management.

He’s chaired ventures in Remediation, Innovative Manufacturing and Biotechnology, the Melbourne Institute Advisory Board from 1992 to 2002, and the Australian Institute for Commercialisation (2002 to 2007), amongst others. You can find him online at his blog Henry Thornton.
