November 11, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Law School 4047

Chris Giancarlo had a thirty-year career as a Wall Street lawyer and finance executive before emerging as leader of one of the world's most important market regulators, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, known as the CFTC. In the face of both domestic and international criticism, he led the agency to recognize the digitization of markets and foster the development of cryptocurrencies. Please join us as Giancarlo discusses his new book, "CryptoDad: the Fight for the Future of Money." The book is about how America's existing financial market infrastructure, just like its bridges and tunnels, has been allowed to age and decay, unprepared for the coming Internet of Value.
