As the crisis in the U.S. financial markets worsened and the credit markets tightened, all eyes were on the Bush administration's $700 billion bailout plan passed by the U.S. Senate on Oct. 1. Shortly before the Senate vote, a panel of Cornell experts met in Goldwin Smith Hall to discuss the circumstances that led to the collapse and potential courses of action.

Panelists:

  • Robert C. Andolina, visiting senior lecturer of finance and former managing director at Lehman Brothers
  • David Easley, Henry Scarborough Professor of Social Sciences
  • Elizabeth Sanders, professor of government

The event was organized by the Cornell International Affairs Review.
