Welcome to another edition of the Seidman Business Review (the “Review”). The Seidman College of Business acknowledges — and takes very seriously — its responsibility to this, the West Michigan Community. That is why we jumped to action early during the fourth quarter of 2008 to convene this business community’s and Seidman’s finance, banking, and economics experts to address the issue of the historic financial crisis that threatens this Community’s financial viability. We thank you for helping to make Seidman’s two events hugely successful: “The Historic Financial Crisis — A West Michigan Conversation” (September 30) and “CNBC’s [Bill] Seidman Evaluates the Nation’s Financial Crisis” (October 9th). We appreciate the opportunity to serve!
