Symposium Announcement - The Fall of the Economy: How New York Can Rise to the Challenge
On March 5, 2010, The Journal of Civil Rights and Economic Development at St. John's University School of Law will host a symposium entitled: The Fall of the Economy: How New York Can Rise to the Challenge. The web page for the event describes the event as follows:
This Symposium will foster a discussion about business social responsibility, government bailouts of big business and the mortgage foreclosure crisis. As a backdrop, the panels will also explore the economic inequities in the United States, and in New York City, that predated the recent economic crisis and have been exacerbated by the biggest economic collapse since the Great Depression. The goal of this Symposium is to learn lessons from what caused the market collapse and to determine how to repair the breaches in our economic system.
Notably, my friend and co-blogger, Scott Colesanti, will be presenting at the symposium. Based on his presence alone, I'm sure it will be great event. Of course, the rest of the panels look good also.
