Understanding the Recent Financial Crisis

Graduate School of Business

Recommended for route(s):

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] Business Law: Finance: Capital Markets, Financial Reporting, Corporate Governance

Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in Financial Markets : Understanding both what led up to the recent financial crisis and the regulatory responses to the meltdown will be useful for anyone who will provide advice to clients about finance law. This course looks at what went wrong, particularly in areas where risky financial assets were not adequately understood and accounted for. Lawyers working with clients in the financial markets should understand the basics about finance, but also the most likely areas where mistakes can be made.

General course Description:

This compressed lecture course will explore the causes of the recent financial crisis, solutions implemented during the crisis, and options for reform.

It will reside at the intersection of economics, financial markets and institutions, policy, and politics.

Topics we will consider include:

* Did a global savings glut, international savings flows, or Fed policy cause the surge in domestic investment?

* What caused the housing and mortgage bubbles?

* How does a bad mortgage turn into a toxic financial asset?

* Why and how did large financial institutions fail? What's the difference between a solvency crisis and a liquidity crisis?

* What is Too Big To Fail? Is it real? Why was Bear Stearns bailed out but not Lehman?

* Was the global financial system on the verge of meltdown in September 2008? How? Why?

* What was the TARP? The TALF? The CPP? The stress tests? Did they work?

Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.
