Rosa Abrantes-Metz, Michael Barr, and Miguel De La Mano discuss how to reform LIBOR with David S. Evans
Competition Policy International has assembled an all-star team to discuss what to do about the LIBOR — the interest rate index that acts as the benchmark for hundreds of trillions of dollars on contracts, from home mortgages to credit-default swaps, globally. The Barclay’s settlement with the US CFTC and the UK FSA identified extensive manipulation of the LIBOR rate, which is established through the daily submission of rates to a central body. There is widespread agreement that the current LIBOR process must end. But should it be tweaked, overhauled, and blown up? And what happens to all those contracts that are pegged to LIBOR now.
To discuss these issues CPI has brought together:
The seminar will be conducted by a web conference starting at 10 a.m. EST. The program will be open for discussion at 30 minutes past the hour.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
