Round Table: The Burden of Our Times

Show Summary Details


Over the course of two panels at the Arendt Center's 2009 conference, some speakers were echoing similar ideas or offering counterbalance to other comments made at the conference. Taun Toay interviewed these individuals after the conference to continue conversations ranging from free-market capitalism to tax evasion. Excerpts are presented from these interviews including thoughts on the lasting legacy from this crisis and whether or not reforms can keep us from repeating history.
