CAN THE ECONOMY BE SAVED? How We Got Here and What We Must Do Now, with FELIX ROHATYN, NOURIEL ROUBINI & JEFFREY SACHS, moderated by CHARLIE ROSE, "LIVE from the NYPL Lite," October 28, 2008. A LIVE from the NYPL forum on the global economic crisis with three leading authorities: Nouriel Roubini (NYU) was one of the earliest and most persistent economists warning us of the housing bubble leading to our present financial calamities. Jeffrey Sachs (Columbia) has dealt with financial crisis over a quarter century in all parts of the world. Felix Rohatyn is famed as the man who saved NYC from its financial crisis of the 1970s as well as a leading financier, diplomat, and voice for public responsibility. This conversation, moderated by Charlie Rose, among these three experts enables the public to join in a unique reasoned and detailed discussion of the origins and perhaps solutions to the current upheaval.
