Capitalism is unquestionably the dominant socioeconomic model in the world today. But since the financial crisis of 2008–2009, it has become clear that what we thought we wanted—growth at any and all costs—isn’t what we really want. Instead, we want growth in the service of social goals, growth balanced with stability, income equality, intergenerational equity and environmental sustainability. That’s why we’re hearing and reading today about concepts like social capitalism, inclusive capitalism, fiduciary capitalism, sustainable capitalism and regenerative capitalism. These are attempts to go beyond describing what we don’t want from capitalism—namely, a repeat of the financial crisis—to start a conversation about what we do want from capitalism in the decades ahead.

Under President Trump, we are about to experiment with a radically different approach to economic policy. The premise? By freeing American businesses from over-regulation, renegotiating “bad” trade deals, punishing companies that move jobs overseas, limiting immigration, reducing taxes and investing in infrastructure it will be possible to rekindle the animal spirits of American entrepreneurialism, repatriate hundreds of billions of dollars of capital, double economic growth from 2% to 4% and create jobs. Will this Ayn Rand version of capitalism work? It might in the short run. But in the long run, hurdles and headwinds abound. One thing is certain: America needs it to work if we are to reverse the slow-motion meltdown in trust and civility we’ve been witnessing since the financial crisis.

Global economic troubles since 2008 have put central banks, and in particular the Federal Reserve, on watch. More and more people are asking if we need a Fed at all, and others, if the Fed acts contrary to collective interests. To the average person, low unemployment and a booming economy are the ideal we should constantly aspire to. Not so to members of the Federal Reserve and other global central banks. They are very explicit in their view that low unemployment and soaring economic growth cause labor and manufacturing shortages that lead to inflation. This talk will address the perceived pros and cons of a central bank—and specifically address central bank models of inflation—in a global context to conclude whether the Fed is essential, dangerous or superfluous.

Modern economists act as though economic growth is mysterious and hard to achieve. In fact, nothing could be easier than economic growth. It’s as simple as getting four basic inputs—taxes, regulation, trade and monetary policy—correct. This talk will describe the basics to growth, and then apply them to the present economy to show what is holding it back when it’s slow, and what’s causing it to boom when the economy is soaring.

Though wealth inequality is viewed in a pejorative light by many economists, and most members of the political and pundit class, it's reality is a great deal better than most realize.  As the talk reveals, rising inequality signals a falling gap in the standard of living experienced by the rich and poor, greater opportunity for the individuals who comprise any economy to pursue the path in life that most animates their talent, and a rising base of capital that will be redistributed from the rich to the companies of today and the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

The new leadership at the Federal Reserve inherits a prolonged, if unspectacular, economic expansion that has shown few signs of fading.  Yet longer-term questions about the U.S. economy remain as significant as ever. Did the financial crisis and Great Recession inflict lasting damage on growth potential? Or did they amplify or accelerate changes that were already taking place? Or will economic performance simply take a long time to return to pre-crisis norms? Daniel Tarullo examines the contrast between the relatively clear shorter-term outlook and the key challenges for Federal Reserve policy over the medium to longer-term, including the decisions that must be made on the key instruments for conducting monetary policy and the size of its balance sheet, how it will deal with the lingering questions about labor markets and inflation, and whether the Fed will have the tools needed to fight the next recession.

In the wake of the financial crisis, Congress and regulators made the most far-reaching changes in financial regulation since the New Deal. Some have argued that more needs to be done to combat the too-big-to-fail problem and ensure financial stability, while others claim that the new regulations are impeding financial intermediation and holding down economic growth. With the Administration stating its desire for substantial changes to the Dodd-Frank Act and agency regulations, is a major rollback of the post-crisis regulatory reform agenda in the offing? Drawing on his experience leading much of that agenda at the Federal Reserve, Daniel Tarullo assesses the prospects for change. He offers insight into legislative initiatives most likely to be successful, the prospects for significant regulatory and supervisory changes even without amendments to Dodd-Frank, and the potential for a substantial swing in financial regulatory policy with each change of party control of the White House and Congress.

While financial regulatory authority rests with local authorities, the impact of international regulatory standards on national regulation has increased greatly since the financial crisis. International efforts were launched by the leaders of the G-20 to coordinate a stronger regulatory framework across countries. The Financial Stability Board, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the International Monetary Fund, and other organizations joined in this effort. A decade after the crisis began,
what have these efforts accomplished? How will the member countries of the international organizations deal with the rising tensions between international initiatives and domestic politics in the Unites States and elsewhere? How will Brexit affect
international standards? With his first-hand involvement in the post-crisis international efforts, as well as the perspective provided by his prior experience in the State Department and White House, Daniel Tarullo discusses the current importance of international standards, what their impact on financial firms is likely to be, and how the looming leadership ship changes at
the Financial Stability Board and Basel Committee may alter the tenor of international regulatory cooperation.
