Interview: Dr. Jim Gatti on the financial crisis

Print More

If your head is still reeling from all the complexities of the financial problems affecting, well, everyone and wondering what can be done to fix things, you’re probably not alone.

Even James Gatti, Professor of Economics and Finance at the University of Vermont admits it’s a lot to take in, and experts like him who study the economy for a living don’t have all the answers.

But Dr. Gatti did visit our VPR studios to give us a kind of  "financial 101" on the recent troubles, and you may be pleased to hear he has a "glass half full" view of what might happen next. First, Dr. Gatti helps us understand how some initial economic sparks eventually spread into a full-blown financial inferno.
