Ben Bernanke bookOn Thursday, October 15th, we sponsored the Ben Bernanke discussion, hosted by Town Hall Seattle. The event was held in Campion Hall on the Seattle University campus. Ben Bernanke is currently touring the country promoting his book, The Courage to Act, which explains how Bernanke led the Federal Reserve through the Great Recession. It provides a detailed account of the role of the Federal Reserve and related agencies in dealing with a financial crisis that could have easily become the next Great Depression.

Nearly 100 clients joined us for a private reception before the discussion and received an autographed copy of Mr. Bernanke’s book. Our group enjoyed VIP seating for the main event, a 75-minute discussion between former Governor Gary Locke and Ben Bernanke.

Joseph Phillips, the Dean at Seattle University, posted a comprehensive recap of the evening on his LinkedIn page. We have provided a link to his summary here.
