The Impact of the Global Financial Crisis on the US-Asian Economic Outlook

The Asia Society presents a panel discussion on the ongoing financial crisis and implications for the global economy, particularly the Asia-Pacific region.

January 16, 2009 12:00pm to 2:00pm

What are the root causes of the crisis? How badly will it hurt the US and Asian economies? What are the likely consequences, and unintended consequences, of recent policies introduced to address the crisis? How are future historians likely to judge the crisis? Our distinguished panel will address these questions and more.

Speakers: Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee Professor of Economics and Political Science, U.C. Berkeley; Jack Wadsworth, Asia Society Northern California Co-Chairman and Trustee, Honorary Chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, and Advisory Director of Morgan Stanley globally; and Christopher Sigur (moderator), Senior Project Analyst, Federal Reserve Bank, San Francisco.
Co-sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
