Webcast Recap

The Cornell Club of Washington, the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies and the Woodrow Wilson Center will host an event at the Woodrow Wilson Center on 19 March, 2013, from 6PM-9PM titled "The World Financial Crisis: Where Are We Now and Where Are We Going?" 


Five years have passed since the beginning of the "Great Recession," and it's time to take stock. How do things look today? Has enough been done to rectify the weaknesses of international institutions? How should we assess the current threats posed by the Eurozone crisis? What is the likelihood of currency wars? How much longer will China keep its faith in U.S. assets and the U.S. dollar? Is there a dollar crisis on the horizon if Washington can’t fix its fiscal problems? An expert panel promises a thought-provoking discussion on these questions and more. Featuring:

  • Moderator: Professor Fredrik Logevall, Director of the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies and Professor of History at Cornell
  • Robert C. Hockett, Professor of Law at Cornell and co-author of The Way Forward, a sweeping reassessment of the global economic crisis and what it means.
  • Knight Kiplinger '69, editor-in-chief of The Kiplinger Letter, Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine and Kiplinger.com; and head of Kiplinger Washington Editors, Inc..
  • Michael Casey '94, managing editor at Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal and the author of "The Unfair Trade: How Our Broken Global Financial System Destroys the Middle Class."
