Must-watch Presentation from a Leading Voice in the Fight for Financial Reform

Edward Kane, a professor of finance at Boston College and respected author of numerous books and agenda-setting papers, has been a leading voice in the fight for financial reform.His background as a founding member of the Shadow Financial Regulatory Committee and a senior fellow in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s Center for Financial Research, among other important positions, has given him a unique perspective into our financial system and the urgent need for reforms. He’s highlighted the weak links in our economy, from shadow banking to systemic risk, and discussed the state of our markets following passage of Dodd-Frank financial reform.   

At the  Institute of New Economic Thinking‘s (INET) recent conference at the OECD in Paris, France titled, “Liberté, Égalité, Fragilité: New Economic Thinking 2015,” Professor Kane presented a summary slide show of a terrific paper, “Unpacking and Reorienting Executive Subcultures of Modern Finance.” The slide show, with cartoons (as is his MO), can be seen here and the entire paper can read here. He did this as part of a must-watch panel presentation  titled, “Financial Regulation That Might Have a Chance of Working,” along with Chair of the OECD EDRC William White, Financial Times columnist John Kay, former Fed official Walker Todd, venture capitalist and author William Janeway and Iceland Professor Gudrun Johnsen. You can watch a video of the entire panel discussion here. His website is here.
