One of the most important lessons you can learn in life is that ideas matter. Occasionally, I meet a special person with a brilliant mind and moral integrity who reminds me that sound ideas are the very foundation of law and markets. On this week’s Solari Report, you are going to hear from one of them.
John Laughland is a British philosopher and historian. He serves as the Director of Studies at the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation in Paris. He is the author of A History of Political Trials from Charles I to Saddam Hussein; Schelling versus Hegel: From German Idealism to Christian Metaphysics; Travesty: The Trial of Slobodan Milosevic and The Corruption of International Justice; The Tainted Source: The Undemocratic Origins of the European Idea, and The Death of Politics: France under Mitterrand.
I will be talking with John about current events in Europe, including the geopolitics of currency and sovereign debt wars and what they mean to the future of the European Union. I will ask John to update us on his analysis described in his article this summer, "Why the Euro Will Fail."
I will be covering Tuesday’s elections and the latest developments in the financial markets in Money & Markets and answering Subscriber questions in Ask Catherine.
