Global Financial & Economic Crisis: What Should the G20 Do?
Aaron Edlin, Barry Eichengreen, Maurice Obstfeld, Pierre Olivier Gourinchas & Andrew Rose
Description: In April, leaders from the G20 countries representing 85% of the global economy will meet to develop a coordinated response to the worldwide economic and financial collapse. What actions can G20 leaders take to stem the tsunami washing over the world economy? How will these leaders find common solutions to this international disaster? Our distinguished panel of UC Berkeley economists discuss these questions and identify answers. Panelists include Aaron Edlin (Berkeley Law), Barry Eichengreen (Dept. of Economics), Maurice Obstfeld (Dept. of Economics), Pierre Olivier Gourinchas (Dept. of Economics), and Andrew Rose (Haas School of Business).
