Online registration for this event is closed. Walk-in registrations may be accepted.
Americans are living in the wake of the great credit bubble of the twenty-first century. They have experienced the crisis of its collapse, massive increases in government intervention and debt, and now more uncertainty. What’s next? Are we in for a long slog, or will the economy rebound? What will happen to housing prices, mortgage defaults, commercial real estate, the banking system, and post-bubble Europe? Will we have defaults on sovereign debt? Deflation? How big will the Fed’s balance sheet get? What steps should be taken now? These and related questions will be discussed by our panel of economic and financial experts.

The fundamental error committed by Europeans governments at the beginning of the crisis was the failure to shrink the banking system, and to force the bondholders to share the cost of the rescue operations (Wolfgang Munchau, http://www.eurointelligence.com/index.php?id=581&tx_ttnews%5Btt_news%5D=2915&tx_ttnews%5BbackPid%5D=901&cHash=5fc6365df5).As it was in the US.And now with the massive mortgage documentation frauds, they still don’t want to get it. What more do they want?
