A Break Down of the Bailout
Stephen Bainbridge, Ken Taymor & John P. Hunt
Description: As the economy crumbled in 2008, the government intervened to "save" financial institutions that were "too big to fail." This unprecedented action generated a multitude of legal, economic, and political questions; perhaps none more important than "will it work?" With the decision to intervene behind us, it is now time to evaluate the effects on law, business, and the economy as a whole. Panelists include Stephen Bainbridge (UCLA Law), Ken Taymor (BCLBE), and John P. Hunt (Davis Law).
