Coming in Fall, 2016(Date TBD) • 4:30—6 Ethical Issues in the Banking Crisis of 2008  A financial crisis panel discussion of the events and analysis of the ethical lapses that occurred in the lead-up to the 2008 crisis.

 In September 2008 the world’s financial system seemed to be in imminent danger of collapse; the rush to repair the damage and shore up the system for the future was handled by a variety of extremely capable people. But foremost among the group were a dedicated number of Dartmouth alumnae who worked tirelessly to control the chaos in the financial sector. This panel will serve as a “Fred Friendly” style seminar that will include the key players in this historical event: Henry Paulson (1968), John (Hans) Morris (1980), John Mahoney (1980), and Ken Wilson (1969). The panel will provide an overview of the events as well as analysis of the ethical lapses that occurred in the lead-up to the crisis. Professor Matt Slaughter (Tuck, Associate Dean) will serve as interviewer, and Aine Donovan will serve as convener.
