Anatomy of a meltdown

In this lively forum, four University of Adelaide professors, experts in finance, banking, economics and international trade, will break the GFC down, clear the fog and assess the way forward.

In this lively forum, four University of Adelaide professors, experts in finance, banking, economics and international trade, will break the GFC down, clear the fog
and assess the way forward.
