I have to deliver a speech about a current global issue and I have picked the financial crisis in the US, including poverty, and immigration (since it's so broad)
The main part of this assignment is to pick a person that has influenced this issue, and talk a little about that person. Then include your own personal opinion.
I was hoping someone on here could help me find a person for this topic so I could get started. (The individual does not have to be well known)
Try some of the following links for information:
1. financial crisis =
2. immigration crisis =
You might consider Alan Greenspan.
The stock market was booming and most people believed that it would continue to rise. Then Greenspan gave his "irrational exuberance" speech. Many people pooh-poohed his view -- but it did send a note of caution to more conservative investors.
I found this guy, Robert Kuttner, who has written a few books on this topic. I think he might be a good example for my speech. But I need help figuring out what are his exact views on this topic, I mean I obviously don't have time to read the books. So..what should I search?
Google him and see what you find.
hmm..thanks for that -.-
