Be Able to Talk About the Credit Crisis

When Rita mentioned today that the Starr Career Center is advising students that they should be prepared to talk about the credit crisis during job and internship interviews, I wanted to mention a video lecture I listened to this weekend. Alan Blinder of Princeton talks for about 90 minutes on "The Origins of the Financial Mess." Any student wanting to understand the issues, the causes, and the players would find it useful. You can find the video in the collection of lectures on Academic Earth, a new platform for video lectures from top universities and think tanks. Berkeley, Stanford, Harvard, Princeton, Yale and MIT are participating universities.
