Event Detail

How to Predict the Next Financial Crisis

Richard Vague, President of the Governor’s Woods Foundation and Managing Partner, Gabriel Investments and Steve Clemons, Washington Editor-At-Large, the Atlantic and Senior Fellow at the American Strategy Forum at the New American Foundation will discuss the findings from their recent paper,  “How to Predict the Next Financial Crisis”.  An article based on  the paper appeared in “the Atlantic” in which they argued that “The highly tempestuous debates between Keynesians and deficit hawks distract from the real causes of the Great Recession and from the solution.” and “…that to stimulate jobs and economic growth, financial houses should take phased write downs of assets and give loan holders relief and debt forgiveness”   The full article is available on line at: www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/07/economic-growth-idea-forgive-or-restructure-debt-us-citizens-hold/260155/

 

Anthony Santomero, Senior Advisor to McKinsey& Co. and former President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and Paul McCulley, Retired PIMCO Senior Partner and Chair, GIC Global Society of Fellows, will serve as discussants commenting on  the issues raised  by Richard Vague and Steve Clemmons. Peter Burns, GIC Board Member and Senior Payments Advisor, Heartland Systems, will moderate the discussion with panelists and our audience.
