The aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis has been an extraordinary period in monetary and fiscal policy in the United States and around the world. Considering the remarkable economic and financial history of the past half-decade, the American Enterprise Institute would like to offer undergraduates the opportunity to learn more about the crisis from those who observed it firsthand.

An AEI webinar will feature brief commentary from two top AEI scholars, John H. Makin and Stephen D. Oliner. The majority of the time will be reserved for questions from undergraduate economics and finance students. By providing this opportunity to elite students of macroeconomics, public finance, and monetary policy around the nation, we hope to foster a broader understanding of economics in the wake of the crisis.

Watch the video and participate live on this page on February 28, 2013, at 2:00pm (EST).
