Join Chicago Booth in London on 4th March as Professor Kroszner and Martin Wolf engage in an insightful discussion on the global financial crisis and share their outlook for the global economy a decade on. 

 A decade on from the financial crisis – What lessons have we learned? Could it happen again?

 Ten years after the 2008 banking collapse and the start of the global financial crisis, many economies are prospering, with strong employment growth and high corporate profits. Yet worries about trade wars, deficits, inflation, and political instability persist. What lessons have we learned in the last decade? How has the crisis of 2008 influenced today’s global regulatory and risk environments? Could it happen again?

As a Governor of the US Federal Reserve System from 2006 to 2009, Chicago Booth professor Randall S Kroszner took a lead role in developing responses to the global financial crisis. He also chaired the Fed’s Committee on Supervision and Regulation of Banking Institutions during this time. His book ‘Reforming US Financial Markets’ with Nobel laureate Robert Shiller appeared on the Washington Post’s Political Best Seller list.

 Martin Wolf is the chief economics commentator and associate editor at the Financial Times. Martin is author of numerous books, including, ‘The Shifts and the Shocks: What We’ve Learned – And Still have to Learn – From the Financial Crisis’. In 2000 he was awarded the CBE (Commander of the British Empire) for services to financial journalism.
