How could a once-obscure lending category unleash the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression? How did the effects of the U.S. subprime mortgage crisis spread around the globe? Faulty reasoning and greed created an environment that led up to the crisis, and laxity allowed it to spread. To avoid a recurrence, homeowners, investors and policymakers would do well to examine not only specific missteps, but also the deeper forces behind the crisis, including homeowner psychology, antiregulatory sentiment, and the technology that facilitates complex global lending. Based on his highly regarded book that exposed the roots of the subprime crisis, Financial Shock: Global Panic and Government Bailouts—How We Got Here and What Must Be Done to Fix It, Dr. Zandi helps audiences understand more deeply:

  • How mortgage lenders, investment bankers, builders, regulators, and the Federal Reserve caused this global disaster. 
  • How homeowners and investors can protect themselves from financial shocks already on the horizon. 
  • What policymakers need to do now to prevent a recurrence.

What are the major forces driving international conflict? How is new technology transforming espionage and warfare? What are the most dangerous places in the world and what should the United States do about them? This talk gives a candid look at the past, present, and future of American foreign policy, examining successful grand strategies that overcame impossible odds, the current threat landscape, and key policy choices.

Cyber threats are growing more prevalent and scary, from Russian hacking in the 2016 American presidential election to the massive theft of corporate intellectual property to the growing danger of cyber acts of mass disruption. Today, there are only two kinds of companies: those who have been hacked and those who just don’t know it yet. How can policymakers, business leaders, and the rest of us make sense of this evolving landscape? Who are the most serious cyber bad actors? Is deterrence ever possible in cyberspace? These are some the questions we explore, with a walk through we should know, what we do know, and what we don't know about digital dangers.

We all know that spies in the movies are different than spies in real life. But how different? And does it really matter? This talk examines the top five myths about espionage and examines how the rise of “Spytainment” is influencing real policy, from Supreme Court arguments to congressional hearings to the use of interrogation techniques.
