"The Future of the Global Financial System"
Where did our global financial system come from – and where is it heading? What effects should we expect from shadow banking, the rise of China, and the ongoing malaise in the euro area? Can the US build a strong economy, immune from the difficulties elsewhere? Or will we experience repeated crises in coming decades?
We are very fortunate and honored to have Dr. Simon Johnson of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to be our keynote speaker. He is also a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington, D.C.; a co-founder of BaselineScenario.com; a member of the Congressional Budget Office's Panel of Economic Advisers; a member of the FDIC’s Systemic Resolution Advisory Committee, and a member of the private sector systemic risk council founded by Sheila Bair in 2012. In July 2014, he joined the Financial Research Advisory Committee of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Financial Research (OFR).
“For his articulate and outspoken support for public policies to end too-big-to-fail," Johnson was named a Main Street Hero by the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) in 2013. Over the past five years, Johnson has published more than 300 high impact pieces in the New York Times, Bloomberg, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, The New Republic, BusinessWeek, The Huffington Post, The Financial Times, and Project Syndicate.
