Weds, March 22 – Post-financial crisis, post-election, how are we going to regulate our banks and our financial markets? Specifically, what makes sense in an era of global megabanks and nefariously labeled shadow banks—what is crucial, and what just feels good? And most importantly, why should Main Street care about how we regulate Wall Street? We’ll talk about the shadow-bank runs that redirected Lehman Brothers and AIG and the handiwork of Messrs. Dodd and Frank in 2010, consider changes made or proposed to be made to that handiwork by the administration of Donald Trump, and we will contrast those changes with the changes that have been proposed by Mses. Clinton and Warren and Mr. Sanders.
Bill Shirley, a long-time Larchmonter, interrupts his Wall Street lawyering to teach whenever he can. Bill was a visiting assistant professor of law at Hofstra Law School, where he taught banking and financial institution law, and he makes occasional guest appearances at Columbia Law School. His day job is with Sidley Austin, where he advises on a wide range of legal matters related to the financial services industry, particularly Dodd-Frank and other regulatory initiatives that followed in the wake of the financial crisis. During the financial crisis, Bill served as general counsel of AIG Financial Products Corp., which was one of Wall Street’s tallest lightening rods during the storm, and that experience continues to shape his thinking about banks, about financial markets and about their regulation
