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.
- 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.
