The George Lengvari Sr. Lecture Series

30 October 2012

October 30, 2012

Repairing a Broken World

A dinner with Reuven Brenner.

Internationally acclaimed economist and Montreal entrepreneur Reuven Brenner may not be quite ‘an expert on ALL things mysterious,’ as Paul Volcker described him. But this talk revealed his very different take on both the present crisis and possible solutions, and why the policies currently pursued around the world are doomed.

The evening was "interactive," with Robert Guy Scully both asking him questions and acting as the MC to handle those coming from the audience.

"Brenner is an economist who thinks for himself [...] His insights are original, provocative, and edifying." -The Wall Street Journal

"An expert on all things mysterious." -Paul Volcker, Chairman of the American Federal Reserve (1979 - 1987)
