The Post-Crisis Global Economy: Prospects for Recovery and Reform
An event at the University of Wisconsin sponsored by the Division of International Studies and the Business School CIBER:
Join a distinguished panel of speakers, including Jeffry Frieden, Stanfield Professor of International Peace, Department of Government, Harvard University, Menzie Chinn, Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, and Michael Knetter, Albert O. Nicholas Dean, Wisconsin School of Business, for a discussion of pressing questions facing the global and U.S. economies in the aftermath of the crisis. Moderated by Mark Copelovitch, Assistant Professor of Political Science & Public Affairs.
As the global economy emerges from the worst economic and financial crisis since the Great Depression, attention has shifted toward the prospects for recovery, as well as the need for reform of the policies and institutions governing international finance. What are the growth prospects for the U.S. and the world economy in the coming years? Have the underlying causes of the global crisis been addressed? What are the barriers to domestic regulatory reform and international cooperation that would avert another crisis?
The event will be live-streamed (event starts at 5PM Central, runs to 6:30).
