A Fireside Chat hosted by Lee Shaiman & featuring Ms. Amity Shlaes, New York Times Bestselling Author, The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression and her most recent, The Great Society: A New History.

Loan market participants have gone through at least two seminal events, the Great Financial Crisis and the Current Novel Coronavirus Pandemic, where government intervention has had or will have impacted the outcome and perhaps change the direction of the country. Ms. Shlaes is a careful historian. The study of two of her books can be very instructive in predicting how government intervention is likely to turn out for our economy, our society, and our markets.
