Finance Roundtable: NOBEL PRIZE WINNER ECONOMIC SCIENCES, PROFESSOR ROGER MYERSON

THE BANKERS' NEW CLOTHES

Alumni Club of Chicago Booth hosts Roger Myerson, David L. Pearson Distinguished Service Professor of Global Conflict Studies in the Harris School of Public Policy and the Griffin Department of Economics at the University of Chicago,  at a Finance Rountable to discuss his work on banking regulation, amongst other topics.

  • Should any security be labeled "safe"(AAA rated mortgage backed securities, sovereign debt in the euro zone, etc.)?
  • Should Regulators use risk-weighted capital adequacy formulas, a bank's own risk models, or both? What do citizens need to know about what accounting standards bank regulators should apply to ensure regulatory reforms are effective?
  • How do we keep regulators accountable?
  • Should we elimate off balance sheet liabilities?
  • Why do banks have an incentive to use debt financing? Should we require equity financing?
  • What is the single most effective way to ensure that a bank's owners have an incentive to manage its risks prudently?
