Ben Bernanke '75 with Gary Locke: How U.S. Economic Stability Was Restored SOLD OUT

Members-only event: Hear former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke '75, in conversation with Gary Locke, former governor, U.S. commerce secretary, and ambassador to China


After serving as chair of the Federal Reserve in 2006 – just before 2007’s housing bubble burst and subsequent Great Recession – Ben Bernanke '75 has released a tell-all memoir The Courage to Act. More than just a personal journal of this crisis, Bernanke’s book gives insight into policy decisions made by two presidents and two Treasury secretaries that, in his opinion, were crucial to stabilizing the economy and preventing further catastrophe. In conversation with former Washington State Governor, former U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and most recently America’s envoy to China Gary Locke, Bernanke will share wisdom he gained during this time – including what it means to respond quickly and efficiently under great pressure – and explore the real meaning of courage. Tickets are sold out through Town Hall, but we have a limited number of tickets available for Harvard Club members.
