Due to elections (I’m running!) and massive amounts of work, expect a lighter posting schedule until mid-to-late week. Sorry. -Sahar
I’ve been assured that this’ll be the biggest thing on campus for at least this week.
This event features the Deans of both Heller and IBS, talking about the mortgage mess and so forth.
Jason Gray tells me that it’ll be big. That’s good enough for me.
Make sure you go, dudes.

The U.S. Financial Crises and What the Next President Might Do About It

***Financial Crisis at Home and Abroad – Imagining the next President’s agenda***
The Collapse of the subprime mortgage market has shaken U.S. and global financial markets. Iconic corporations are mired in bankruptcies and bailouts.
