Lecture by R. Glenn Hubbard

Hubbard gives a “report card” on financial regulatory reform, including such efforts as the Dodd-Frank Act. The main focus of his lecture, titled “A Roadmap for Financial Regulatory Reform,” is on the need to acknowledge and manage trade-offs between enhancing accountability for individual institutions and mitigating systemic risks from contagion.

After giving the 2013 Homer Jones Memorial Lecture, Professor Glenn Hubbard takes questions from the audience on such topics as contagion, the effectiveness of past and current regulatory efforts, and being prepared for financial crises before they hit.
