"Why Some Firms Thrive While Others Fail: Governance and Management Lessons from the Crisis"

Thomas Stanton

About the Program

Thomas Stanton, former staff member of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, argues that the main difference between companies that successfully made it through the 2008 financial crisis and those that didn't was the willingness of upper management to listen to feedback before making decisions.  Alex Pollock of the American Enterprise Institute provides commentary.  Hosted by the Cato Institute in Washington, DC.
