    The coronavirus pandemic has upended American capitalism and forced the Federal Reserve (Fed) and central banks around the word to take drastic steps to keep money flowing throughout the financial system. The Fed has dusted off its 2007-09 financial crisis playbook and expanded it with unprecedented lending facilities that target corporate America directly. What is the purpose of these programs, how do they work, and what tools remain in the Federal Reserve's toolbox to help aid the economy during these unprecedented times? Please join us via Zoom to hear the answers to these questions. Featured speakers include former Deputy Treasury Secretary and Federal Reserve Board Governor, Sarah Bloom Raskin; Global Financial Markets Center faculty director, Lawrence Baxter, and Global Financial Markets Center executive director, Lee Reiners.

Growing problems in the increasingly one-sided finance markets blew up the economy in 2008. In the aftermath, Congress created the CFPB. Sharing the stories of individual consumers, Watchdog shows how the Bureau quickly became a powerful force for good, suing big banks for cheating or deceiving consumers, putting limits on predatory lenders, simplifying mortgage paperwork, and stepping in to help solve problems raised by individual consumers. It tells a hopeful story of how our system can be reformed by putting government back on the side of the people, to strengthen our families, safeguard the marketplace, and establish a new baseline of fairness in our society. Lunch will be served. Sponsored by the Global Financial Markets Center. For more information, contact reiners@law.duke.edu.
