"Mortage Reform Under Dodd-Frank: Cosmetic or Constructive?"
How have mortgage reform standards evolved in the regulatory process and what will be their likely impact on the residential mortgage market? Dr. Calabria will discuss the subject of residential finance, generally thought to have played a prominent role in the recent financial crisis. The Dodd-Frank Act contains a variety of provisions aimed at reforming the mortgage market. Foremost among these are the Qualified Mortgage (QM) and Qualified Residential (QRM) standards.
Mark A. Calabria, Ph.D. is Director of Financial Regulation Studies at the Cato Institute.

In that position, he handled issues related to monetary policy, housing, mortgage finance, economics, banking and insurance for Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL).
