Creative Capitalism: Navigating Rough Waters on Wall Street and Main Street


Michael Kinsley, Columnist, Time Magazine; Founding Editor, Slate; Author, Creative Capitalism


It’s official. The U.S. has now been in recession for at least a year, and the markets show no signs of significant recovery in the near future. One of the most prolific and thoughtful commentators on the U.S. political scene today, Kinsley turns his razor-sharp intellect and dead-on commentary to our financial system. Kinsley, who served as editor of the New Republic and as the liberal half of the original “Crossfire” team, assesses the current financial crisis and the state of America’s markets, and discusses how the Obama administration can tackle the biggest economic challenge since the Great Depression. Don't miss this opportunity to hear how the political climate shapes the country’s economic future.
