Hendrickson Forum 2014

Main Street vs. Wall Street and the New Financial Paradigm: A Conversation with the Honorable Sheila C. Bair

Date: April 8, 2014

Time: 11:30 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.

Location: Saint Mary's University Center
2540 Park Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55404

Cost: General $40, Saint Mary’s University Alumni $20, Students $10
(Includes a hearty salad lunch)

Join us for a presentation and question-and-answer session with Sheila Bair. Five years after the start of the Great Recession, much of the financial sector appears focused on propping up the past failed systems. Homeowners, businesses and small banks struggle to recover while “too big to fail” organizations push for policies that retain their advantage. New developments to consider include changing investment management in the U.S. and Europe as well as the economies of developing countries.

Bair will discuss:

  • Turning from short-term gratification to long-term economic stability
  • Producing real value to generate meaningful economic gains
  • Looking forward to global challenges and other 21st century issues

At the event, the 2014 Hendrickson Medal for Ethical Leadership will be awarded to Chris Policinski, President and CEO of Land O’Lakes.

A sign language interpreter will be available.
