Summary: Susan Wharton Gates is the author of Days of Slaughter, the premier book to tell the story of Freddie Mac from an insider perspective. In this seminar, she will offer a first-hand account of housing policies, complex financial transactions, and the crazy quilt of federal and state actors involved in the Great Recession. Gates lays out a cautionary tale of failed policies and corporate mismanagement that compellingly addresses previously unexplored issues of political ideology, organizational dynamics, and ethics, and explains why it could happen again.

This event free to attend and will be telecast on C-SPAN. An open reception will follow Dr. Gates's presentation.
