On November 20th the Center for World Affairs and the Global Economy (WAGE) convened a panel of distinguished UW-Madison professors who offered different perspectives on the causes, consequences, and potential solutions for the global economic crisis. Experts from economics, business, law, public affairs, and political science provided insight into the following questions: 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?
WAGE is pleased to provide links to videos of panelist presentations along with their PowerPoint slides. All of the below videos are Powered by Sonic Foundry MediaSite.
