Antitrust and Regulation: Credit Rating Agencies

Add to Calendar: Thu, Jun. 21, 2012 12:30pm — 1:30am

CPI would like to extend an invitation to a live webinar, "Antitrust and Regulation: Credit Rating Agencies," taking place on Thursday, June 21, at 11:30 AM EDT. CPI President Elisa Mariscal will moderate the presentation by Professor Lawrence White (NYU Stern School of Business) and Dr. Rosa Abrantes-Metz (Global Economics Group, NYU Stern School of Business).

The panel will review the role of credit rating agencies (CRAs) in the financial crisis and their performance in structured finance, discuss the problems with this market, and propose some solutions. In particular, our expert panelists will ask whether CRAs have become “too important” to the financial markets and regulatory systems, and how policy should address this concern. The presentations will include a discussion of the “issuer pays” model and its possible alternatives, and focus on whether policy should encourage more competition in this market.

This series will be presented over CPI’s Global Learning Platform which delivers lectures globally in real time. The only technology required is a computer with a flash player and a telephone. Registration is free. Email by Tuesday, June 19 to reserve your seat.

I hope you can join us.
