Sep 30: “Consumer Credit and the American Economy” – Why do people borrow? An attempt to live beyond their means or income smoothing that accompanies growing prosperity? Consumer Credit and the American Economy examines the economics, behavioral science, sociology, history, law, and regulation of consumer credit in the United States. The authors look at why Americans use credit and the implications for both the American economy and government regulation. With the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, created by the Dodd-Frank Act, spreading its wings, there is perhaps no better time to have an in-depth discussion about the past and future of consumer credit. This panel features some of the leading experts in consumer financial regulation, who have served as both regulators and scholars. Tuesday 12:00 pm. Cato Institute. For more information click here

Sep 30: “The System Worked, a Book Talk with Dan Drezner” – In The System Worked, Drezner, contents that, thanks to the efforts of central bankers and other policymakers, the international response was sufficiently coordinated to prevent the crisis from becoming a full-fledged depression.

Tuesday 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm. Georgetown University. For more information click here

Oct 1: “Rethinking Housing Bubbles: The Role of Household and Bank Balance Sheets in Modeling Economic Cycles” – Balance sheet crises, in which the prices of widely held and highly leveraged assets collapse, pose distinctive economic challenges.
