Financial Regulation in the Post-Reform Era
Eugene Ludwig/Promontory Financial Group
Description: From the Civil War to the savings & loan meltdown, U.S. financial regulation has been shaped by cycles of crisis and reform. What do changes like the Dodd-Frank Act mean for the evolution of the American regulatory model, and for global priorities like financial inclusion and development? Eugene Ludwig, founder and CEO of Promontory Financial Group, former U.S. Comptroller of the Currency, and former vice chairman and senior control officer of Bankers Trust/Deutsche Bank, will place these changes in the context of earlier reforms, including the interstate banking, financial holding company, and community reinvestment policy changes of the 1990s.
