A course taught by Dr. Haim Kedar-Levy, visiting professor at Yeshiva University’s Sy Syms School of Business, is being broadcast on Galei Zahal, a radio station operated by the Israeli Defense Force. The course, “Financial Crises in the Past Century,” aims to explain what constitutes a financial crisis, how it evolves and whats its economic and social implications are by offering a comparative analysis of great financial crises that have occurred over the last 100 years, ranging from America’s Great Depression in the 1930s to the global implications of the recent credit crisis.

Dr. Kedar-Levy is a senior lecturer at the Guilford Glazer Faculty of Management, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. He is currently teaching a course, “Causes and Consequences of Financial Crises,” at Sy Syms and has two upcoming books on financial crises. The first, in Hebrew, will be published by Modan Publishing House. The second, in English, is titled A Brief History of Financial Crises: The Economics, Politics and Fraud Behind the Scenes (Imperial College Press).
