  • Reith: Niall Ferguson: The Rule of Law and its Enemies 4 10 JUL 2012

    Tue, 10 Jul 12

    Duration:
    58 mins

    The decline of civil society in the Western world is the topic of Niall Ferguson's final Reith Lecture in which he argues that the greatest mistake of the past 50 years was to allow the state to encroach on civil life, assuming it could do a better job than the people themselves. Encouraging more local activism by citizens will not just garner better results than declining government institutions, but will also fuel a more positive impact on the community. The question is - where to start?

    Duration:
    54 mins

    Are we living through a time of creeping legal degeneration in the English-speaking world, asks the economic historian Niall Ferguson in the third of his 2012 Reith Lectures. Speaking at Gresham College in the heart of London's legal district, he examines the relationship between the nature of law and economic success, and asks just how credible the common law's claim to superiority over other systems really is.

    Is financial regulation the disease of which it purports to be the cure, asks economic historian Prof Niall Ferguson in his second Reith Lecture. He argues that overly complex financial regulation is to blame for the 2007 financial crisis - not deregulation, as many others claim. The solution to getting the banks to behave, he says, is not more regulation but scaled back, simplified regulation and, importantly, full enforcement of the law.

    Institutions determine the success or failure of nations and a society governed by abstract, impersonal rules will become richer than one ruled by personal relationships, says the economic historian Prof Niall Ferguson. But, he asks, are the institutions of the West now degenerating, as young people confront the fact that they must live with the huge financial debt generated by the baby boomers? And is there a way of restoring the compact between the different generations?
