Baker at Conferences
Co-director, Dean Baker spoke at two conferences this past week. On Tuesday, he was part of a panel at the Take Back America 2008 conference which was held in Washington, DC. His co-panelists were: Albert Meyerhoff, who has practiced for more than 30 years in labor, civil rights and environmental law; Lisa Ransom who is the Vice President of Federal Affairs for the Center for Responsible Lending, and Theresa Di Martino, an activist and consumer who was ensnared by a predatory home lender. Video of the panel discussion can be seen here. Then, on Thursday, Dean traveled to Sacramento, CA where he spoke at the annual conference of the California Budget Project on the bursting of the housing bubble and the challenges it presents to homeowners in California and across the country.
