The Post-Crisis Global Economy: Prospects for Recovery and Reform
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?

A great set of lectures and an important reminder that the political solutions required to exit from this credit calamity will probably be more difficult to invoke than economic policy alone.
