Event Details

Through economics, politicians have the power to change lives for better or worse. Think Deng Xiaoping who lifted millions out of poverty by opening up China; Franklin D Roosevelt whose ‘New Deal’ helped the US break free of the Great Depression. Or Peron and his successors in Argentina who brought the country to the brink of ruin. In his fascinating talk, economist and former Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable examines the legacy of 16 world leaders who transformed their countries’ economic fortunes and also challenged economic convention. From Thatcher to Trump, from Lenin to Bismarck, he offers a compelling journey through some of the most significant people and events of the last 300 years.

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
