Sorry for short notice, but if you are around Washington DC this lunch time, Center for American Progress is hosting a discussion event on the financial reform efforts with Robert Posen and Robert Johnson. They’ll be discussing Posen’s new book, “Too Big To Save?”, which is an excellent introduction to both how the financial system works and didn’t work, and where reforms can be implemented. (It really is as good as the reviews it is getting, including ones from Tyler Cowen, James Kwak and Felix Salmon). Robert Johnson (my new boss) will be discussing the book with him, moderated by Sarah Wartell.
I’ll be there in the audience. If you make it, feel free to say “hi.” If you can’t make it, you should be able to stream video of the site at this site. Details:
