Reform of Financial Markets On Tap At Chamber Summit, Will Paulson Discuss Treasury Blueprint?
A panel on “The Emerging Consensus for Financial Market Reforms” (including Harvard Law School’s Hal Scott, coordinator of the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation nicknamed ‘the Paulson committee’) and a speech by Thomas Renyi, Chairman of the Financial Services Roundtable, on “The Growing Momentum to Enhance U.S. Financial Competitiveness” will set the stage for a keynote address by U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson at tomorrow’s (March 26) U.S. Chamber of Commerce Second Annual Capital Markets Summit. Observers will be watching to see if Paulson chooses the Chamber summit as a venue to unveil Treasury’s blueprint to modernize financial regulation.
