Title:  The History of the U.S. Financial Crisis

Presenter: Ron Gambassi, owner of Gem State Investment Advisors, LLC

Learn about the scoundrels, characters and institutions behind the financial crisis of 2008 and the tools of destruction they used to nearly send the U.S. and World economies into the Economic Apocalypse.

Questions for be discussed include:

How did it happen?

How could it have been avoided?

Where were the regulators?

Can it happen again?

And more . . .
