Becker-Posner Blog Luncheon Discussion (The World Recession is Ending: What Next?)

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago

November 4, 2009: 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

The November 4 discussion will focus on the predicted recovery from the current economic contraction. The recessions in China, India, Brazil, and a few other countries have ended, and it strongly looks like the US and the world recessions are also over. How important were monetary and fiscal policies instituted during the past year in preventing a far more serious recession? How will the new regulations to monitor executive pay affect the recovery? Will the recovery be flat or 'v' shaped? Come and discuss these and other aspects of the economic recovery with your fellow alumni.
