A New York Times headline reads: “Revolving Door at S.E.C. Is Hurdle to Crisis Cleanup”; another headline: “Revolving Door Not a Problem, Study Finds.”  This free public program will go behind the headlines to ask:

  • What are the ethical rules of the road for regulators and prosecutors moving into the private sector?  For private-sector personnel going into government?
  • Has the flow of people and expertise between government and the private sector – the so-called “revolving door” – limited government’s response to the financial crisis, or improved it?
  • Do the rules of the road need reform?

Moderator: Scott Cohn, Senior Correspondent, CNBC.

Panelists: Susan Antilla, Columnist, Bloomberg View; Rachel Barkow, Segal Family Professor of Regulatory Law and Policy, New York University School of Law; Matthew Biben, Senior Legal Adviser and General Counsel for Consumer and Community Banking, JPMorgan Chase; Joseph Brenner, Chief Counsel, Enforcement Division, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission; Martin Grant, Chief Compliance and Ethics Officer, Federal Reserve Bank of New York; Thomas Perrelli, Partner, Jenner & Block LLP, former Associate Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice.

Sponsored by: Committee on Banking Law, John Clarke, Jr., Chair; Committee on Government Ethics, Jeremy Feigelson, Chair

Event Location: 42 West 44th St. (bet. 5th & 6th Ave.)
