The Fordham Law School is holding a symposium on regulatory capture, with a vague emphasis on the financial sector, on Monday morning from 8 to noon, plus lunch if you want to stick around. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) will be talking — I’ve heard him, he knows his stuff — and the panelists will include Lawrence Baxter, Daniel Kaufman, Steven Davidoff and Robert Weber. And me. I’ll be talking (for ten minutes, plus discussion) about types of regulatory capture, in particular how regulatory capture can operate in the absence of corruption and dishonesty.
I believe according to the website it’s free if you don’t want lunch. And lawyers can even get CLE credit (you have to pay a bit more), even though I’m still in law school!
