Many of today's students were too young to be impacted by the financial crisis directly; to them, the crisis is but a faint memory. Considering the stock market has recovered all its losses and then some, students may fairly wonder why the crisis is so important and worthy of study. But the effects of the crisis remain everywhere around us. Therefore, we will be hosting a one-day conference on March 20th that will invite scholars and prominent professionals to campus to reflect upon the impact of the crisis across multiple dimensions. The conference will be capped by a conversation between David Rubenstein, co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group and Alan Schwartz, executive chairman of Guggenheim Partners LLC and former CEO of Bear Stearns. Check out the conference website for more info and to RSVP: https://sites.law.duke.edu/tenyears/. Sponsored by the Global Financial Markets Center.
