Fragile by Design
The Political Origins of Banking Crises and Scarce Credit

Featuring:
Charles Calomiris
Henry Kaufman Professor of Financial Institutions, Columbia Business School

Moderated by:
Robert J. Samuelson
columnist, The Washington Post

Who gets to be a banker? Who has access to credit? Who pays for bank bailouts and rescues? Why has the United States had 12 systemic banking crises since 1804 – and Canada has had none?

Charles Calomiris, coauthor of a soon-to-be-released book that probes these difficult questions, will offer a revealing exploration of the way politics inevitably intrudes into bank regulation, in a discussion led by Robert J. Samuelson.

Thursday, February 6, 2014
Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Discussion begins promptly at 8:00 a.m.
