Economic Crisis Topic of DC-Area Truman Luncheon

On the heels of the recent Truman Scholar meet-and-greets around the country, Scholars have continued to gather. 

On April 1, a group of six Washington, DC-area Truman Scholars met for lunch. Those present ranged from the second year the Scholarship was awarded, 1978, to the second-to-last year, 2009. 

Dan Sichel (MI ’81) of the Federal Reserve Board offered a summary of what happened in the United States financial crisis of 2007-2008 from the perspective of the Fed, and led a discussion.
