2020 A Decade of Dodd-Frank

On June 30, the Center on Regulations and Markets at the Brookings Institution and the Center on Finance, Law & Policy at the University of Michigan hosted an event to examine the difficult choices made in drafting Dodd-Frank, its impact on systemic risk and consumer protection, and the response to the COVID-19 crisis in both domestic and global contexts.

The conference consisted of a series of panel discussions, as well as a lunchtime keynote discussion with former Chairmen Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. Other speakers included Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard; former Fed Chair Janet Yellen; former Fed Vice Chair Don Kohn; Securities and Exchange Commissioner Hester Peirce; former Fed Governor Jeremy Stein; former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray; and top academics, policymakers, and experts. This conference evaluated the performance of the Dodd-Frank Act over the last decade and considered what the Act means for the future.
