March 27, 2012

Agenda | Abstracts | Speakers | Conference Proceedings | Conference Videos

The Richard Paul Richman Center for Business, Law, and Public Policy cordially invites you to an invitation-only conference on Financial Risk and Regulation: Unfinished Business, co-organized by Ira Millstein and Charles Calomiris. This conference launches a new initiative on Interdependence in the Global Economy.

This conference brings together top economic and legal experts to address regulatory reform in the United States. It will examine how implementation of Dodd-Frank and Basel III may affect the structure and performance of US financial institutions. Panelists will also examine whether additional reforms should be considered, including the restructuring of bank capital requirements, the reorganization of large “too-big-to-fail” banks, the creation of new regional or global regulatory authorities, new resolution structures, and tax policies for financial institutions. The conference aims to influence future regulatory actions, practitioners’ strategies vis-à-vis regulation, and academic research.

Charles W. Calomiris, Henry Kaufman Professor of Financial Institutions, Columbia Business School

The world economies seem to be recovering from the financial crisis of 2008, but where are they headed? What opportunities will there be? What challenges will be faced by policy makers? What new forces are at work that we haven’t faced before? Unlike past recoveries we are confronted with unique challenges. In fact three big trends are interacting in ways that will impact all economies. Potential GDP growth rates are slowing in most large economies, populations of large nations with big GDPs are aging and the economic wellbeing of everyone is being impacted by inequality of income and wealth. Join us to understand these issues better and what policy challenges our leaders will have to address. Get a grip on what it means to you, your country and those around you as Neal Soss, Vice Chairman, Research at Credit Suisse explores many aspects of these three dynamics that will impact us all.
