In this panel the invitees are Sheila C. Bair – FDIC Chairman, Ben S. Bernanke – Federal Reserve Chairman, Thomas D. Bell, Jr. – Chairman U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Mark R. Warner – U.S. Senator.
Following “Framing the Issues” a second panel titled as “Confronting the Obstacles” shall be moderated by John Harwood. Here the invitees will be leaders from government and private sector. In both these panels, discussions will be held to identify reasons that constrain credit availability to small businesses and ideas will be articulated for overcoming these obstacles.
