What Have They Done? Implications of the Dodd-Frank Act

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Watch the livestream of this event.

All 2,300 pages of the Dodd-Frank Act are now law, representing a vast regulatory expansion. A measure creating as much government intervention as this act does will be debated for years, perhaps even generations. Was this legislation necessary? Will its effects, overall and with respect to specific provisions, be good or bad for the financial system and the economy? How will it change the activities of financial institutions and regulators, and the functions of financial markets? Will it prevent another financial crisis or real estate bubble? Will it reduce "systemic risk," and how will it affect risk taking in general? How will it affect consumers of financial services and the small businesses that will now be subject to regulation? What, if anything, should the administration and Congress have done differently, and what should they do next? These and related questions will be addressed by two panels of experts with widely different perspectives.

Watch the livestream below. It will begin a few minutes before the event on October 14, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. You can find more information and register to attend in person by clicking here.
