This event will be virtual. Ten years after the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, and in the midst of an even more devastating economic and public health crisis, what are the risks to the financial system and the U.S. economy? This conference will explore whether the Act created an enduring structure to make the financial system fairer, safer, and better harnessed to the needs of the real economy. Panels will explore the policy choices made in the Dodd-Frank Act, DFA’s implementation over the decade, changes during the Trump Administration, current and potential risks to the financial system, debates over consumer protection, and the future of reform.

Policy Talks @ the Ford School
Policy Talks @ the Ford School Free and open to the public. Reception to follow. Join the conversation on Twitter: #policytalks About the lecture If we maintain our current spending and tax policies, the federal budget deficit will be so large that debt will continue to rise much faster than GDP. That cannot go on indefinitely. We will need at least to stabilize debt as a share of GDP, and we may decide to push debt back down toward the share of GDP it represented during the past several decades.
