How did the U.S. government avert an even greater financial crisis, and what is the fallout from the global economic downturn? This month, the Baker Institute will host two speakers uniquely qualified to discuss the financial collapse and what lies ahead.
On March 26, former treasury secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. will discuss his book, "On the Brink," an account of the financial meltdown from his frontline perspective. In the book, Paulson recounts how he addressed urgent market conditions and weighed critical policy decisions as the country faced the most cataclysmic financial crisis since the Great Depression. Before going to the Treasury, Paulson was chairman and chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs. This event is at capacity and RSVPs are no longer being accepted. However, a live webcast is scheduled to start at 6:00 pm on March 26.
The James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy is a nonpartisan public policy think tank located on the campus of Rice University in Houston, Texas. The institute's distinguished fellows and scholars research and collaborate with experts from academia, government, the media, business and private organizations on domestic and foreign policy issues with the goal of bridging the gap between the theory and practice of public policy.
