Members of the regional business community gathered earlier this week at the Union League of Philadelphia for the Chamber’s “Avoiding the Next Financial Crisis” event.

The program featured a discussion with Brooksley Born, former head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and an author of The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report, as she provided insight into the causes of the global recession and offered analysis on the specific components of the financial system that contributed to the economic meltdown.

The discussion, moderated by 6abc’s Brian Taff, also explored Ms. Born’s explanation of what happened on Wall Street, her theories on how to avoid another crisis, and whether or not we are truly on the road to recovery.
