Results From Conference on: Have We Ended Too Big to Fail

On Wednesday November 5th, 2014, Better Markets and GW Law School C-LEAF hosted an event to discuss whether or not the Dodd-Frank Act has ended the threat posed to our financial system by the too-big-to fail banks.  At this conference current and former policy makers addressed regulators’ progress in developing a framework that would allow large financial institutions to “fail” without harming the economy.  In addition to the fantastic panel discussions given by many leading experts, we also heard two great keynote speeches from Jeffrey Lacker, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and Thomas M. Hoenig, Vice Chairman, of the FDIC.
