Mark Gongloff, chief financial writer for the Huffington Post, moderates a panel discussion featuring historian Steven Fraser, author of Every Man a Speculator (Harper Collins, 2005); financial analyst and journalist Barry Ritholtz, author of Bailout Nation (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2009); and author and financial historian Robert E. Wright, professor at Augustana College, on some of the pivotal moments in banking history and how they've created a cyclical economic narrative.
