Deep Insights for Turbulent Times

In their search for new knowledge, Haas School professors go far beyond merely describing a management or business problem and its resolution. As members of a premier research university, Haas scholars seek deeper answers to why things happen the way they do. They develop theoretical explanations to understand and predict future occurrences. These are among the tools that eventually help executives navigate confidently through even the most turbulent, changing times. Several Haas professors were key voices predicting and analyzing the recent economic turbulence.

  • Professor Nancy Wallace’s research served as an early warning, determining that Wall Street banks and bond-rating agencies were underestimating the risk of many new mortgage- and asset-backed securities.
  • Ken Rosen has also been a key voice in the analysis of the real estate meltdown.
