Speaker: Cihan Bilginsoy
Why did the housing and mortgage-backed securities markets collapse in 2007? Did dot-com companies of the 1990s and English railway companies of the 1840s have anything in common that explains the boom and crash of their share prices? What menace scared the Bank of England in 1720, J.P. Morgan in 1907, and the Federal Reserve in 1929? Which was the better course of action for the government: saving Bear-Stearns or letting Lehman Brothers fail? How do supposedly rational investors so frequently succumb to euphoria and despair? Asset price bubbles and bank-runs have been an endemic feature of the capitalist system for centuries. The historical record offers a treasure trove of experience that may shed light on how and why financial crises happen.

Chadwick’s presentation will focus on the dustiest, thirstiest, bed-hair shaggiest—and rarest—bears in the world: Gobi grizzlies. They live on the outer edge of possibility among wild camels, wild asses, ibex, wolves, and snow leopards in one of the harshest environments on Earth. What has the Gobi Bear Project been learning about these bears? What do we really know about grizzly bears in general apart from centuries of tall tales and strong opinions about what we imagine them to be like? Chadwick, who studied mountain goat ecology and social behavior atop the Crown of the Continent for seven years, is a natural history journalist, producing 14 popular books and hundreds of magazine articles. Chadwick is a founding board member of the Vital Ground Foundation, a conservation land trust.
WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
March 28, 2017 | 2-7 p.m.
The theme of this year’s conference is “HER: Story Movement Life.” Women’s lives consist of choices, desires, decisions, needs, relationships, sacrifices, goals and attainment of those goals. Women’s lives are lived in the context of the times and the generations and are influenced by the social happenings and political climate.
Women’s lives are complex in our relationship with ourselves as well as our inclusion of others, family, children or community. We have dreams that drive us, and work and love that grounds us.
In short, women move in the moment and in movements of history throughout our lives.
Where are you in your life movement? How is your story shaped by the bigger movements in our time and culture? What are the choices, and desires and imaginative risks you have taken or sacrifices you have made to create the life you want?
What have you composed and completed in the past? What movement are you composing in your life now?
What’s your story?
