Conference on financial reform: Make Markets Be Markets

Tomorrow morning I will be at a conference on financial reform hosted by the Roosevelt Institute in New York City.  As far as bloggers go, I know that Yves Smith of Naked Capitalism and Mike Konczal of Rorty Bomb will also be there. So expect to see some details on the discussion in the days that follow.  I do recommend following the events on Bloomberg or CNN, if you have the chance. Details are provided in the blurb on the conference below.


Tomorrow, March 3rd from 8:00 am – 11:00 am ET, the Roosevelt Institute will gather some of the nation’s leading financiers, economists, and former regulators to release a report outlining critical actions needed to reform the nation’s financial system.

Authors include: Elizabeth Warren, Simon Johnson, Roosevelt Institute Director of Financial Reform Initiative Rob Johnson, Frank Partnoy, Lynn Turner, Michael Greenberger, Roosevelt Institute Fellow Mike Konczal, Josh Rosner, Richard Carnell, Raj Date, and Lawrence White.

Responding to the report are George Soros, Roosevelt Institute Chief Economist Joseph Stiglitz, Jim Chanos, Roosevelt Institute Senior Fellow Bowman Cutter, Peter Solomon, Lynn Turner and Judge Stanley Sporkin.

Portions of the conference will be broadcast by Bloomberg TV and CNN. For more information, please check the website, Make Markets Be Markets.
