ISSUES DISCUSSED
Market and policy antecedents and repercussions of the 2008 Financial Crisis and the Great Recession began long before and lasted long after the Lehman bankruptcy in September 2018. This four-part series of presentations and discussions held on four different days during the fall of 2018 aims to delve into the causes, but also to examine the actions and interventions taken during the crisis and the recession, and to draw policy lessons for the future. Each part of the series began with two short paper presentations followed by active discussions and critiques.

John Cochrane, the Rose-Marie and Jack Anderson Senior Fellow, and Darrell Duffie Darrell Duffie, Dean Witter Distinguished Professor of Finance at the Graduate School of Business, and professor by courtesy, Department of Economics, Stanford University, discussed “the Lessons,” the fourth session in the series.
