Event Speakers

Garett Jones

Senior Research Fellow

Please join the Mercatus Center on Wednesday, July 21 for a live and interactive webcast with Garett Jones, assistant professor of economics at George Mason University, as we discuss what regulators can do to prevent another financial crisis. Jones will share his research showing that regulations should include guidelines for how to enable politicians to stand up to big banks before the crisis affects the entire financial system.

The financial regulatory reform bill has fallen under recent criticism for not addressing the root causes of the financial crisis. How will this bill affect the current financial regulatory environment? How can Congress make this bill work to address the underlying issues of the current crisis? Garett Jones will address these issues and respond to your questions in this hour-long discussion and live webcast.
