The history books are filled with mistaken assumptions about not just the causes of the Great Depression, but also what got us out. Much the same describes the early explanations of 2008 and the difficult recession that followed. This talk will simplify what has been made opaque, while showing that all three major economic events were wholly unnatural effects of bad bipartisan policy error from Washington, D.C.

The tight relationship between Washington and Wall Street is mutually destructive for both. “It’s the economy, stupid” says politics, and yet, the close link between finance and government restrains economic growth by virtue of it politicizing investment. Worse, the ties between finance and government make the bailouts of troubled financial institutions much more likely. The latter greatly weaken the financial sector, all the while inflaming an electorate that views bailouts as evidence of favoritism. This talk will show why the popularity and health of Wall Street and Washington will soar if the two create major distance between themselves.

Global economic troubles since 2008 have put central banks, and in particular the Federal Reserve, on watch. More and more people are asking if we need a Fed at all, and others, if the Fed acts contrary to collective interests. To the average person, low unemployment and a booming economy are the ideal we should constantly aspire to. Not so to members of the Federal Reserve and other global central banks. They are very explicit in their view that low unemployment and soaring economic growth cause labor and manufacturing shortages that lead to inflation. This talk will address the perceived pros and cons of a central bank—and specifically address central bank models of inflation—in a global context to conclude whether the Fed is essential, dangerous or superfluous.

Modern economists act as though economic growth is mysterious and hard to achieve. In fact, nothing could be easier than economic growth. It’s as simple as getting four basic inputs—taxes, regulation, trade and monetary policy—correct. This talk will describe the basics to growth, and then apply them to the present economy to show what is holding it back when it’s slow, and what’s causing it to boom when the economy is soaring.

In the wake of the financial crisis, Congress and regulators made the most far-reaching changes in financial regulation since the New Deal. Some have argued that more needs to be done to combat the too-big-to-fail problem and ensure financial stability, while others claim that the new regulations are impeding financial intermediation and holding down economic growth. With the Administration stating its desire for substantial changes to the Dodd-Frank Act and agency regulations, is a major rollback of the post-crisis regulatory reform agenda in the offing? Drawing on his experience leading much of that agenda at the Federal Reserve, Daniel Tarullo assesses the prospects for change. He offers insight into legislative initiatives most likely to be successful, as well as the potential for significant regulatory and supervisory changes even without amendments to Dodd-Frank.

While financial regulatory authority rests with local authorities, the impact of international regulatory standards on national regulation has never been greater. In response to the financial crisis, international efforts were launched by the leaders of the G-20 to coordinate a stronger regulatory framework across countries. The Financial Stability Board, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the International Monetary Fund, and other organizations joined in this effort. But are they creating minimum standards for all countries, or harmonized national standards, or something else? Are countries abiding by the standards that have been agreed? How will they deal with the rising tensions between international initiatives and domestic politics? And how will Brexit and other global developments affect international standards? With his first-hand involvement in the post-crisis international efforts, as well as the perspective provided by his prior experience in the State Department and White House, Daniel Tarullo discusses the current importance of international standards and what their practical impact on financial firms is likely to be in the future.
