Forbes, El-Erian, Lasry, Griffin on reform, recovery


Steve Forbes, Mohamed El-Erian, Ken Griffin, and Marc Lasry discuss and debate financial industry regulation and the economic recovery in this Milken Institute Global Conference video from Bloomberg.com.

It's not everyday that we get to see such heavy hitters of finance sharing one stage to debate the issues of the day, so this clip is a great source of insight into their thinking on these topics.

Everything from systemic risk to government involvement in our economy and lives is up for discussion here. You'll also hear some great points (and a little debate) from Griffin and Forbes on the problems we face, economically and socially, from the expansion of government's role in the economy.

Enjoy the video, and I hope you find the discussion worthwhile.
