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?
