Capitalism is unquestionably the dominant socioeconomic model in the world today. But since the financial crisis of 2008–2009, it has become clear that what we thought we wanted—growth at any and all costs—isn’t what we really want. Instead, we want growth in the service of social goals, growth balanced with stability, income equality, intergenerational equity and environmental sustainability. That’s why we’re hearing and reading today about concepts like social capitalism, inclusive capitalism, fiduciary capitalism, sustainable capitalism and regenerative capitalism. These are attempts to go beyond describing what we don’t want from capitalism—namely, a repeat of the financial crisis—to start a conversation about what we do want from capitalism in the decades ahead.

The financial crisis showed us but one example of what happens when we lose touch with our stewardship principles and responsibilities; when we focus on short-term gratification and duck accountability instead of demonstrating integrity, humility and purposefulness. The same thing is happening in other areas of social endeavor, like climate change, income inequality, resource depletion and the indebting of future generations through unsustainable entitlements. All are train wrecks in slow motion. But the good news is these challenges can be addressed if we reconnect with our stewardship responsibilities and commit to a 21st-century version of servant leadership.

When it takes effect next spring, the Department of Labor’s new Fiduciary Standard for retirement advice will transform the wealth management industry – for savers, for retirees and for the advisors they work with. Much like ObamaCare did for the health insurance industry. Investors need to understand enough to navigate through the flood of changes coming their way and to choose the types of accounts, platforms, investments and advisors that are best for them. Advisors will have to proactively embrace new rules as the latest step on a decades-long journey towards professionalization. Those that re-gear their practices will prosper and thrive. Those that don’t will see their practices atrophy.

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.

Though wealth inequality is viewed in a pejorative light by many economists, and most members of the political and pundit class, it's reality is a great deal better than most realize.  As the talk reveals, rising inequality signals a falling gap in the standard of living experienced by the rich and poor, greater opportunity for the individuals who comprise any economy to pursue the path in life that most animates their talent, and a rising base of capital that will be redistributed from the rich to the companies of today and the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

The new leadership at the Federal Reserve inherits a prolonged, if unspectacular, economic expansion that has shown few signs of fading.  Yet longer-term questions about the U.S. economy remain as significant as ever. Did the financial crisis and Great Recession inflict lasting damage on growth potential? Or did they amplify or accelerate changes that were already taking place? Or will economic performance simply take a long time to return to pre-crisis norms? Daniel Tarullo examines the contrast between the relatively clear shorter-term outlook and the key challenges for Federal Reserve policy over the medium to longer-term, including the decisions that must be made on the key instruments for conducting monetary policy and the size of its balance sheet, how it will deal with the lingering questions about labor markets and inflation, and whether the Fed will have the tools needed to fight the next recession.

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, the prospects for significant regulatory and supervisory changes even without amendments to Dodd-Frank, and the potential for a substantial swing in financial regulatory policy with each change of party control of the White House and Congress.
