Pending Financial Reforms: A Critical Review
November 13, 2009
Dr. George G. Kaufman's talk will focus on the Obama Administration's wide range of financial system reforms in response to the recent financial turmoil to reduce the probabilities of a recurrence. Some are in coordination with reforms proposed by other industrial countries through the G20. Some require congressional approval, while others do not. Many are highly controversial. Dr. Kaufman's talk will critically analyze the more important proposals and identify the pros and cons of these reforms.
