Event Description

There are many conflicting views of what caused the 2008 financial crisis, which are now deeply imbedded in our politics. It will take many years for scholars to separate the facts from the politics and draw some widely accepted conclusions about what caused the events of 2007–08. Nevertheless, even at this point, it may be possible to judge whether the reforms adopted after the crisis will be effective in preventing another crisis in the future.

This conference will begin with a morning panel in which five scholars will outline the principal reasons that have been advanced as causes of the crisis followed by a discussion with House Committee on Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX). In the afternoon, a second panel will discuss how conceptions about the causes of the crisis influenced the reforms that were ultimately adopted and whether these reforms have been or will be effective.
