2009 Symposium slideshow

The seventh annual Europe-U.S. Symposium was held at the UniManagement Executive Learning Center in Turin, Italy amidst a deep world recession. The financial crisis had quickly engulfed the entire globe, spreading to the real economy with global growth virtually coming to a halt. The timing of the event was particularly striking: Timothy Geithner, the incoming U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, had just announced his plan to reform American financial regulation, and a few days after the Symposium concluded, the G20 gathered in London on to find an agreement on how to reform global finance and fight against the economic downturn.
