Oct. 29, 2018 – The Financial Crisis Turns Ten: The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

It's been ten years since the 2008 financial crisis shook Wall Street. The economic, social and political consequences continue to shape our world today, but how much has really changed since then? Could the events of 2008 someday repeat themselves? And what are the big stories journalists should be covering to spot signs of the next crisis before it boils over?

Join members of the New York Financial Writers' Association and the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY on Monday, Oct. 29 for an evening of discussion and reflection on the 2008 financial crisis. The panel discussion, entitled "The Financial Crisis Turns Ten: The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same" will feature a panel of reporters and editors who covered the crisis and its aftermath, which will be moderated by Cezary Podkul:

  • Lauren LaCapra is a finance editor for Reuters, where she oversees coverage of big banks and financial services firms. Lauren has spent most of her career covering the sector and has also written for, Fusion and the AP.
