Global finance crisis subject of GMALL lecture

MANCHESTER - On Tuesday, Aug. 19, Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning will be presenting "The Global Financial Crisis Five Years Later: Are We Any Safer?" with Dr. Roger Leeds at Burr and Burton Academy from 5:30-7 p.m.

Five years after the global financial meltdown that caused unprecedented damage on both Wall Street and Main Street, some argue that excessive financial risk taking is under control and sweeping regulatory reforms are working. Others are convinced that the underlying causes of the financial crisis have not been effectively addressed by either government or the private finance industry and, as a result, it's just a matter of time before the consequences of deja vu are suffered again. Leeds lecture and discussion will weigh the merits of these polarized views.

Leeds is Professor of International Finance at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and Director of the School's Center for International Business and Public Policy. He has published widely in the field of international finance and development, lectured at numerous universities around the world, and been a guest commentator on various radio and television programs, including CNN, Bloomberg News, CBS News, CNBC, and National Public Radio. He is also a member of the Council of Foreign Relations in New York.

Registration for this lecture is $15 paid in advance or $20 at the door.
