The Haas community is invited to an event featuring former U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner reflecting on the financial crises in a conversation with Professor Laura Tyson May 29 in San Francisco.
The event shares the same title as Geithner’s new book, Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises. In the book, Geithner, who served as treasury Secretary from 2009 to 2013, provides a definitive account of the unprecedented effort to save the U.S. economy from collapse in the wake of the worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression.
Tyson is a former chair of the U.S. President’s Council of Economic Advisers under President Bill Clinton and formerly served as dean of the Haas School.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. May 29 at Congregation Emanu-El, 2 Lake St., San Francisco. As a community partner of the event, Haas is offering a special discount to students, faculty, staff, and alumni who wish to attend. Using the discount code HAAS25 will allow members of the Haas community to pay $25 for an orchestra seat (typically $55), which includes a free copy of Geithner’s book (a $30 value).
