Taubman 301, 3rd floor, Taubman Building, 15 Eliot Street
Effi Benmelech, Assistant Professor of Economics, Harvard University
What is to blame for the current economic woes? Benmelech will discuss the "credit rating crisis" of 2007 - 2008 and the credit rating practices used in the creation of exotic (and some would argue toxic) new financial products which are believed by many to be one of the causes of the current financial crisis.
Cosponsored by the Taubman Center for State and Local Government
