20th Annual Hyman P. Minsky Conference: Financial Reform and the Real Economy
A conference organized by the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College with support from the Ford Foundation
New York City
April 13–15, 2011
The 20th Annual Minsky Conference addressed the ongoing effects of the global financial crisis on the real economy, and examined proposed and recently enacted policy responses: Should ending too-big-to-fail be the cornerstone of reform? Do the markets’ pursuit of self-interest generate real societal benefits? Is financial sector growth actually good for the real economy? Will the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill make the entire financial system, not only the banks, safer?
