About the Conference

For the 10th anniversary of the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the Initiative on Global Markets (IGM) and the Stigler Center at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business are organizing a conference on the causes, as well as the key players and mechanisms, of the 2008 financial crisis. The conference will be hosted in Chicago on September 14 and 15, 2018. We are soliciting proposals for papers to be presented at the conference. Suitable topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Fraud in Mortgages
  • Credit agencies' mistakes
  • Regulatory and supervisory failures
  • Accounting, disclosure, and audit failures
  • Flawed Expectations about House Prices
  • Global Savings
  • Glut/Global Imbalances/Demand for Safe Assets
  • Excessively Loose Monetary Policy
