Kathleen Day - Broken Bargain: Bankers, Bailouts, and the Struggle to Tame Wall Street

Upcoming Event
Sunday, January 13, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Day’s compelling and insightful history of the nation’s financial crises focuses on those of the 1920s, the 1980s, and the 2000s. As she examines how each catastrophe has shaped U.S. history, she also shows how easy it’s been to forget the vital lessons they have taught us. While loose credit and weak regulation have played key roles in every speculative boom since the 1920s, the decades since then saw a steady rollback of the regulations instituted as a response to the Great Depression. Day, now a professor at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, was a business journalist for more than thirty years for outlets like The Washington Post.
