FREE: The Becker Friedman Institute for Economics at the University of Chicago Present: Have We Learned Anything from the 2008 Financial Crisis? Discussion with former U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and former Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Barney Frank
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 5:30-6:45 PM
Gleacher Center, Room 621, 450 Cityfront Plaza Dr., Chicago, IL
Ten years have passed since the collapse of Lehman Brothers sent shockwaves throughout global markets and economies, marking the start of the global financial crisis. Now, a decade later, what are the lasting impacts of the financial crisis on the U.S. economy? Looking back in the rearview mirror of fiscal policy, how effective were the responses to the crisis and how are they shaping financial markets today? And what should policymakers do to further strengthen the economy and prepare for future crises?
Join the Becker Friedman Institute and the Institute of Politics in welcoming two distinguished policy leaders from the financial crisis, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and former Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Barney Frank, for a conversation on what happened, what we learned, and what can be done to prevent a similar catastrophe from happening again. This conversation will be moderated by Bethany McLean, contributing editor for Vanity Fair and former IOP Fellow.
