Richard Posner, Robert Litan, Brian Brook; moderated by David Evans
Is the world’s current financial crisis a failure of government or the market? Richard A. Posner, acclaimed jurist and author of an important and controversial new book, A Failure of Capitalism, debates the compelling question of whether capitalism has indeed failed our financial system and if regulation is the answer in a live webcast on May 14 at 2 p.m. ET. Judge Posner, one of the leading intellectuals of our day, will be joined in this provocative roundtable discussion by two noted experts in financial services: economist Robert E. Litan, who has written extensively on the financial crisis, and Brian P. Brooks, a nationally recognized attorney who specializes in subprime mortgage issues. David S. Evans, an economist who is the editor-in-chief of FinReg21’s Lombard Street will moderate.
