Cato’s 26th Annual Monetary Conference will provide an in-depth treatment of the Lessons from the Subprime Crisis, which some view as the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Leading experts will discuss the underlying causes of the loss of confidence, particularly the policies that contributed to the subprime crisis and the reforms needed to avoid future turmoil in financial markets.
Issues to be discussed at this year’s monetary conference include:
• What responsibility does the Fed have for the subprime crisis?
• What are the limits of monetary policy?
• How can financial and monetary rules be improved to reduce moral hazard and improve financial stability?
• Can the Fed prevent asset bubbles?
Please join our distinguished speakers on November 19 at the Cato Institute to discuss what can be learned form the U.S. subprime crisis and how best to avoid future financial crises by improving the policy framework and strengthening private markets. Register by October 20 to ensure your place at this important event and to take advantage of the early registration fee.
