Intended and Unintended Consequences of Financial Regulatory Responses to the Financial Crisis: A Discussion with Peter Fisher of BlackRock & Professor Jeffrey Gordon of Columbia Law School (Moderated by Jesse Greene)

12:30-2:00 p.m. Columbia Law School-JG 105

This discussion will explore what has happened in capital markets following the crisis, particularly the impacts — both intentional and unintentional — of financial regulatory changes. In what ways have these regulatory changes affected access to capital markets and the way financial players do business? To what extent does uncertainty about future regulations affect counterparty behavior and risk-taking? What should be done about the unintended consequences of regulatory reform? To what extent do these reforms fail to go far enough in addressing risk factors that could produce a future crisis? These and other related topics will be the focus of this event.

12:30-2:00 p.m. Columbia Business School-Uris 142

The decades-long decline of American manufacturing coupled with a rise in Chinese competition is the subject of public debate, political campaigns, and even Super Bowl ads. China is perceived to have developed manufacturing capability that is superior to other nations and to be taking jobs from the US, among others. Some American firms allege that misappropriation of trade secrets and intellectual property is part of the Chinese model.What is China really capable of, and how did it get to the current state? What are its legal duties in intellectual IP? What can companies do to protect the foundation of their earning power? Is the concern valid and where is this going as China increases it innovation capability? These and other related issues will be explored in this discussion.

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.
