Collateral Damage: Houses, Finance and the Economy

Associate Professor of Economics

Moderated by: Cynthia Wichelman, M.D.

The economy entered a recession approximately one year ago. Many people believe economic conditions are likely to further worsen in the near future and remain dire for quite some time. Many of the elements that contributed to this crisis can be traced to the housing market, the financial products and policies that developed around it, and international economic conditions. We will discuss some of the issues that led to the present situation, the current policies meant to address it, and international aspects of the crisis.

Science On Tap is a place where, for the price of a beverage, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place outside a traditional academic context, in the Crown Room at Schlafly Bottleworks.

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. The standard format is as follows: 20 minutes of presentation, followed by a 7 minute break for attendees to introduce themselves to each other at the table, and then an hour of discussion. Seating is limited to the first 100 people.  No reservations accepted.
