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.
