A Workshop Series on the 2008 Financial Crisis: The Causes, The Panic, The Recession, The Lessons
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 series of presentations and discussions held during the fall of 2018 aims to delve into the causes, but also to examine the actions and interventions taken during the panic and the recession, and to draw policy lessons for the future. Each part of the series includes a transcript, two short paper presentations, comments and related research.
An overview session included a transcript and a video of a panel discussion on the whole series with questions and answers.
