The economic bad news keeps coming: a bursting housing bubble, a volatile stock market, restricted credit markets, a recession, and more. How did a crisis in the U.S. housing market grow into a full blown global economic crisis? What do these events mean for the global economy, governments, businesses and average people around the world? How might we evaluate proposed solutions here and abroad?
Join a panel of distinguished UW-Madison professors who will offer different perspectives on the causes, consequences, and potential solutions for the global economic crisis.
