Global Economic Crisis: The Untold Stories

Thursday, November 20
7:00-9:30 PM

Morgridge Auditorium
1100 Grainger Hall
975 University Avenue

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.
