Secretary of the Treasury, Jacob J. Lew

This doesn’t happen everyday: Secretary of the Treasury, Jacob Lew, is speaking right here, right now, in Korn Convocation Hall. He’s en route to Cairns, Australia, for the Group of Twenty (G20) Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting, but stopped off at UCLA Anderson to speak to a full house. His speech is also live-streaming on our Anderson website.

First topic: tax inversions and patriotism.

Next: US economic relations with Russia.
Next: China.
Next: Value of the Dollar.

Now, questions and answer period. The questions posed by students:
Syria and ISIS?
Scotland and UK?
Student loans?
Tax code reform, reactions from other countries?
Wealth inequality?
Communicating post-2008-financial-crisis efforts?
How to communicate contentious topics abroad, at home?
Dean Judy Olian, last question, immigration reform: As one-third of our students are international. How do we make sure they can work here, with their UCLA education?
