Event Description

The Fordham Journal of Corporate and Financial Law
Symposium on
Harmonization versus Diversification of Global Financial Regulations
Monday, February 11, 2013
James B. M. McNally Amphitheatre


The panel discussion will address the general question of regulatory design, focusing in particular, on global efforts to contain systemic risk.  Topics we expect to address include whether the global financial system is rendered more or less stable by the adoption of uniform rules; how to prevent regulatory arbitrage while encouraging regulatory experimentation; the extent to which errors in regulatory policy contributed to the global financial crisis of 2007-2008 and the ongoing European sovereign debt crisis; and ideas for reforming the architecture of global financial regulation.  Panelists will be drawn from academia as well as government and industry.
