Nov 18: Robert Greenhill on Wall Street and M&A

Part 2, November 18 2008: Robert Greenhill, founder and chairman of Greenhill & Co, tells Chrystia Freeland, US Managing Editor, that he expects bank lending to pick up starting in January, and says that the credit crisis has shown how significantly the world's economies are interwoven. He says he has concerns about overregulation but predicts that the US will lead an eventual economic recovery, and believes this downturn will be less severe than the Great Depression as long as governments continue their efforts to end the crisis. He also calls Wall Street's compensation structures into question. Next week, Rick Waddell of Northern Trust. If you have a question for Rick Waddell, please email it to the link below.
