Fear and uncertainty have become mainstays during the current financial crisis in the United [...]States. Americans have witnessed the collapse of major banks, insurance companies, automakers, and the real estate market and unemployment numbers continue to break records. The U.S. government continues to funnel trillions of dollars into the economy, with no end in sight to what has been called the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The College of Arts and Science's Discovery Series for alumni invited Boston University faculty experts in the area of politics and economics to analyze what has brought the country to this point, debate whether the worst is over, and offer remedies to get the United States back on track financially.
