Ten Years After Dodd-Frank
A virtual conference co-hosted by Better Markets and George Washington University Law School's Business and Finance Law Program
Tuesday, July 21, 2020
1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. EDT
Join us on the 10-year anniversary of President Obama's signing of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, the most sweeping financial reform law since the Great Depression of the 1930s. We will look back at the consideration, passage and impact of that historic financial reform law, as well as look forward at preventing future crashes, getting finance to serve society, reducing inequality, and creating broad-based prosperity for all Americans.
The webcast will feature welcoming remarks by former President Barack Obama along with a keynote discussion with Senator Chris Dodd and Representative Barney Frank, moderated by NBC News Senior Business Correspondent and Anchor on MSNBC, Stephanie Ruhle.
The webcast will also include remarks by the following key Dodd-Frank and financial reform participants in these historic events: Senator Elizabeth Warren, House Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters, former FDIC Chair Sheila Bair, former Deputy Secretary Treasury/Fed Governor Sarah Bloom Raskin, and former Citibank/Citigroup CEO John Reed.
Better Markets will also be releasing two major reports at the event: one will be a detailed discussion of the consideration and passage of the Dodd-Frank Act as well as its implementation (or not) during the administrations of Presidents Obama and Trump. It will also look at what’s next for financial reform, including going beyond the Dodd-Frank Act. The second report will be “President Obama in his own words” and will review the President’s statements on financial reform during his administration.
