Law and Business Center Discusses "Anatomy of a Meltdown"
Posted October 1, 2011
The Law and Business Center for Advancing Entrepreneurship hosted Michael Malloy, distinguished professor and scholar from the McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific, on September 29. His lecture, titled "Anatomy of a Meltdown: The Continuing Small Business Impact," discussed how small businesses have been affected by the current economic conditions.
Malloy spoke on the government's response to the economic turmoil that has impacted many small businesses. “The response to this crisis essentially has not been a top down response, but a top only response in most respects. To the extent that politically the Congress had to give some sentiment towards helping small business and removing some regulatory burdens from them, they did that but they did it in a way that is obscure, unlikely to succeed, and in some sense counter productive.”
The next Law and Business Center for Advancing Entrepreneurship speaker will be Professor Marc Meyer of the Northeastern University School of Business. Meyer's lecture, titled "Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century," will take place on November 17 at 12:00 noon in the Blake Law Center Commons.
