Author Series Luncheon: “From Wall Street to Bay Street”

May 23, 2018 @ 11:45 am - 1:30 pm

Guest Speaker: Albany Club Historian, Joe Martin

The 2008 financial crisis rippled across the globe and triggered a worldwide recession. Unlike the American banking system which experienced massive losses, takeovers, and taxpayer funded bailouts, Canada’s banking system withstood the crisis relatively well and maintained its liquidity and profitability. The divergence in the two banking systems can be traced to their distinct institutional and political histories. Joe Martin reveals the different paths each system took which led to such different results in 2008..

Joe Martin is the Director of the Canadian Business History Initiative at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, President Emeritus of Canada’s History Society. Founding President of the Canadian Business History Association as well as the Albany Club’s resident historian.
