YIVO INSTITUTE FOR JEWISH RESEARCH
Niall Ferguson will speak on
JEWS AND MONEY
Jews, Capitalism, Finance.
A Centuries-old Association.
A story of over-achievement in the face of discrimination; A source of fuel for anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Jewish power. Is there something unique about the relationship between Jews and business? If so, what exactly is it that sets the Jewish experience apart from that of other 'market-dominant' ethnic minorities? Niall Ferguson is well placed to offer some new thoughts on this old and often vexed question.
Niall Ferguson is the Laurence A. Tisch Professor History at Harvard University, Senior Research Fellow at Jesus College, Oxford University, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.
