Synopsis:

The international community is now confronting its most severe global economic crisis since the 1930s, so there is acute interest in attaining a better understanding of the crisis, revolving around three key questions: Precisely what has happened? Why has this occurred? What can we do about it? Thus, this presentation will: explore both the underlying structural causes as well as the short-term triggers of the crisis, with a focus on the United States; examine the consequences of the crisis, first in the United States, and then globally, with a focus on the impact in East Asia; and assess public and private sector efforts to date to mitigate the crisis.
