Participants will look at the history of several U.S. crises such as the “Panic of ‘07” and the “Depression of ‘29” through two lenses: One historical and the other an ethical, moral dimension to see if these crises could have been mitigated. Why, how and what were policy makers thinking that led to such chaos? Lessons on ethics from the publication will pose provocative questions about public policies of the past, present and the future. Professor Fenner will stress the need for teachers to have students reflect and develop critical thinking skills necessary to explore the events in their lifetime within a wider moral context.
