  • In the Green Room: Professor Todd Zywicki on Proposed Financial Reforms

    Yesterday, Professor Todd Zywicki from the George Mason School of Law joined Heritage’s David John and American Enterprise Institute’s Alex J. Pollock for a panel titled, “Protecting Consumers in the Financial Marketplace: Thinking Outside the Boxes“. The discussion centered around the proposed financial regulations and a possible Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA).

    After the panel, Professor Zywicki, a Senior Scholar of the Mercatus Center and contributor to the popular legal blog The Volokh Conspiracy,  sat down with us for an “In the Green Room” segment. We talked about the problems we face if Congress enacts the CFPA, the real causes behind our current financial crisis, and what principles should undergird real financial regulatory reform.
