“Diagnosing and Treating the Roots of the Financial Crisis” was a noon Capitol Hill Briefing given on Wednesday, September 2, 2009, by the Cato Institute in room B-339 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
Johan Norberg talked about his book Financial Fiasco: How America’s Infatuation with Home Ownership and Easy Money Created the Economic Crisis (Cato Institute; September 25, 2009). He talked about the role that low interest rates and a push for home ownership played in the recent economic collapse in the U.S. He was joined by Mark Calabria, author of the article “Did Deregulation Cause the Financial Crisis?,” in the July/August 2009 issue of Cato Policy Report. They used slides in their presentations and then responded to questions from members of the audience.
