Revolutionary Cycles and the History of Financial Bubbles w/Carlota Perez

­Welcome to Capital Account.  Rising food prices, called the next crisis, threaten an economy already in a tough spot as the drought pushes agriculture commodity prices to record highs.

We talk to Carlota Perez, author of "Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital: The Dynamics of Bubbles and Golden Ages."
