What caused the current financial crisis? In the view of Hoover Institution Senior Fellow and Stanford economist John B. Taylor, the blame falls squarely at the feet of government. Professor Taylor’s contrarian perspective crisis holds that the primary cause of the financial crisis was a botched monetary policy by the Federal Reserve under Alan Greenspan along with government efforts, such as promoting home ownership among the poor. Professor Taylor will expand on these in a live, virtual webcast on Wednesday, May 20 at 2 p.m. ET. David S. Evans, an economist who is the editor-in-chief of FinReg21’s Lombard Street, will moderate.
