Yesterday, Robert Lawrence, Professor of International Trade at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard, addressed the Lowy Institute on the impact the great recession is having on global trade.

You can listen to his full address here, or join me for a five-minute chat with Professor Lawrence below. Most interesting (and encouraging) for me was the four factors Professor Lawrence nominates that led to or exacerbated the Great Depression, none of which we see today.
