Conference Board of Canada - Lessons from the Recession webinar - January 13, 2011

In the autumn of 2009, the global economy was beginning to emerge from a truly exceptional event, the first synchronized global recession since the Second World War. The recession was caused by a financial crisis that was unprecedented in scale (although not unprecedented in type-there have been many other financial crises since the emergence of capitalism).

The Conference Board of Canada’s Forecasting and Analysis team studied the crisis. The result is Crisis and Intervention: Lessons From the Financial Meltdown and Recession-a book that describes what caused the meltdown and resulting global recession, and identifies 10 key lessons.

Join us on Thursday, January 13, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. EST, for Lessons from the Recession Webinar-an interactive webinar with The Conference Board of Canada’s Chief Economist and hear what caused the global crash and what can be done to prevent another. Glen Hodgson will provide valuable insights for leaders in business, government, labour, academia and media. The book is a concise and highly readable summation of the causes of the global financial crisis and the resulting lessons that need to be learned by both the public and private sectors. This webinar will bring the book to life and allow you to get your questions on the table.
