On Friday March 4, 2011 Paul Williams spoke to a group of 70 business leaders in Bellevue at Maggiano’s Restaurant on the topic of the Cure for Capitalism. Forums Northwest partnered with Regent College, The Center for Integrity in Business at Seattle Pacific University, and John Knox Presbyterian Church for this business lunch.
C3 is committed to helping leaders understand personal and cultural transformation centered on the values of Jesus. C3 also builds forums of 6-12 peer leaders who check in on life and leadership issues.
Two years after the global financial crisis broke, we’re still arguing about whether banks and international financial markets need more regulation, and the Federal Reserve is still printing money. Governments have bailed out their banking industries but now we see western governments in need of bail outs from the IMF and the European Union. Housing and job markets have not recovered and western stock markets are languishing. Ordinary people are still significantly worse off than they were, their children will be paying off increased government debt for a generation, and bankers have returned to a bonus culture. So is the crisis over? Has anything been fixed?
Prof Paul Williams combines over 15 years experience in international financial markets, most recently as Chief Economist of DTZ plc, with an academic background in economics, political philosophy and theology. He currently holds the David J Brown Chair of Marketplace Theology and Leadership at Regent College and is Executive Director of the College’s Marketplace Institute.
