Transcript of Video



Well, thank you, Dennis, and let me first add my thanks to …all the great speakers today who've given us much to think about and continue to work on. Beginning shortly after the signing of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010 and continuing to 2015, GW Law School initiated a series of annual conferences examining various aspects of the Dodd-Frank Act—from the new derivatives regulations to the political economy of regulation, including the problem of regulatory capture mentioned by Sheila Bair, to the fate of the too-big- -to --fail phenomenon post Dodd-Frank. in a number of these earlier events, Dennis Kelleher, individually, and sometimes Better Markets, institutionally, were valued partners.


It's thus particularly fitting that we're able to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the signing of the Dodd-Frank Act in close partnership with Dennis and Better Markets again. So, on behalf of GW Law School and interim Dean Chris Bracey, who helped open the conference, and our business and finance law program that it's my honor to direct, my thanks to Dennis and the entire Better Markets team for their generous and professional collaboration.


Of course, it's a great pleasure for me to thank our terrific GW Law team for their steadfast work on this, particularly Reni Saula and Saurabh Prabhakar of our Business and Finance Law program; Nazeer Nizamuddeen and Matt Bocniak of our IT department and media center; Liz Field, Kara Tershel and Emily Branham of our communications department; and Alicia Garvin of the dean's office.


Finally, many thanks to all of you in the audience for your sustained interest in this important subject. Thank you and good evening.
