Bryant’s Hassenfeld Institute to Host Discussion on RI Credit Union Collapse

The Hassenfeld Institute at Bryant University will host a discussion on the collapse of the Rhode Island Credit Union. “On January 1, 1991, Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun marked his first day in office by shutting down 45 financial institutions to prevent a complete collapse of the credit union system in the state. Join us for a discussion of a new case study on the crisis by Dr. Melissa Prosky and a mini-documentary featuring key voices from this pivotal era in Rhode Island's history,” says the Institute in their press release.
