“As more and more people feel the effects of the current financial crisis and credit crunch, many questions arise. How did this happen, and what comes next?

Eric Hilt, an economic historian, will talk about the historical parallels to the current crisis during the panel discussion “Donkeys, Elephants, Bulls and Bears!” Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 12:30 pm in Pendleton Atrium on the Wellesley campus. Economics faculty members Olga Shurchkov, Malhar Nabar, Joseph Joyce and Akila Weerapana will join him to address the consequences and causes of the financial crisis. The event is free and open to the public.”


As the causes behind the financial upheaval continue to make their way to the surface, the significance of the steps that brought our financial system to this point bear scrutiny.

While we are innundated with media sound bytes and finger pointing, an understanding of the US economy is critical, but can be a daunting task.  Yet everyone keeps asking, “What should we do?”

Assistant professor of economics at Wellesley College, Eric Hilt believes the time is ripe for dramatic regulatory changes.

Catch the panel discussion as they discuss the causes and impact, as well as their take on suggested measures for getting the economy stabilized.
