February 18, 2010
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
This week on Capital Thinking Radio Show, we take a look at the impact of the recent merger between Ticketmaster and LiveNation with Barak Richman, a law professor at the Duke University School of Law. Next, we talk to William M. Walker, president and chief executive officer of the real estate finance company Walker & Dunlop. Walker & Dunlop is one of the nation's largest apartment lenders with significant Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and HUD origination and servicing expertise. Michael Mallory, the executive director of the Ron Brown Scholar Program, comes on the show to talk about how best to help economically disadvantaged African American students attend the nation's premiere universities. The program awards $40,000 college scholarships and creates a life-long network of outstanding young leaders committed to each other, their communities and national service.
