It has been ten years since the 2008 banking collapse and the start of the global financial crisis. A decade later, the global economy is growing, and the global market bust of ten years ago seems like a distant memory.
As a governor of the Federal Reserve from 2006 to 2009, Chicago Booth professor Randall Kroszner took a lead role in developing responses to the global financial crisis. Similarly, as governor of the Bank of Japan from 2008 to 2013, Masaaki Shirakawa, AM ’77—the director and vice chairman of the Bank for International Settlements—spearheaded Japan’s efforts to return the financial system to stability.
What lessons have we learned from the global financial crisis? Could it happen again? Join Chicago Booth in Tokyo as Professors Kroszner and Shirakawa share their insider insights into the global financial crisis and discuss their outlook for the global economy.
Registration and reception: 6:30–7 p.m.
Dean’s Introduction: 7–7:15 p.m.
Panel Discussion and Q&A: 7:15–8:15 p.m.

What is a community? The dictionary defines community as “a group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage.” However, rapid technological development and globalization have changed the nature of our communities while expanding the meaning of what a community can be. These changes have made it difficult for us to recognize what communities we belong to and what physical and social spaces we share as communities. This is especially true in large, interconnected, global cities like Tokyo.
TUJ faculty will examine the meaning and role of community in modern society from a variety of perspectives. We hope this event will be an opportunity for you to think about what community means to you and how you fit in and interact with your community or communities.
Dates: October 22, 24, 29, 31 and November 5
Time: 19:00-20:30 (doors open at 18:30)
Venue: Temple University, Japan Campus, Azabu Hall 1F, Parliament
Cost: ¥2,500 for five lectures.
Bank transfer prior to the first session required. Non-refundable.
