Nov 42th - Financial Crisis: Perspectives from the UW
|Monday, November 24, 2008, 7:30 – 9pm|
|Great Hall, enter on 8th Avenue|
Most of us are still having trouble understanding what has gone wrong with the world’s economic system, even as we face difficult and personal decisions about how to navigate the crisis, and evaluate the proposed solutions. The University of Washington has organized an interdisciplinary panel of experts to discuss the fast changing economic landscape, including Professors Lew Mandell, David Domke, and Jonathan Karpoff. From the perspectives of finance and politics, the panelists discuss how and why it occurred, how it might be influenced by the presidential elections, and steps we should take to protect our own pocketbooks and get the economy back on track. KUOW’s Steve Scher moderates. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life and the University of Washington.
