Session Description

Black Monday 1987 was the “crystal ball” crash: It showed us where we were going, and how fragile markets could be when we got there. After the worst one-day meltdown in history, a crash that almost derailed the entire nancial system, Wall Street and its Washington overseers vowed they would take steps to make sure nothing like that ever happened again. That didn’t happen. It still hasn’t happened. Indeed, the historic meltdown in 2008 involved many of the same tectonic market changes rst exposed as hazards in the 1987 crash. Please join Diana as she recounts the saga as well as the impact issues.
