After Dodd‐​Frank: The Future of Financial Markets — Welcoming Remarks and Opening Keynote Address

Featuring John A. Allison and Richard Kovacevich

This two‐​day conference, hosted jointly by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and the Cato Institute, explores some of the most hotly debated aspects of financial regulation and policies to improve financial markets in a post‐​Dodd‐​Frank world.
