Challenging the Power of Finance

Roundtable Discussion

The recent meltdown of the financial markets and the lack of progress on announced financial reforms at the international level have stimulated debates about power in the field of finance. What role do financial institutions have in influencing the regulatory process? What has been achieved since the financial crisis? These questions will be addressed by experts from academia, NGOs, and think tanks in this roundtable discussion.

The roundtable discussion is organized by the WZB Project Group "Modes of Economic Governance" in cooperation with EU COST Action "World Financial Crisis", ICDD Universität Kassel, Arbeitskreis Politische Ökonomie der DVPW, and the Hans Böckler Foundation.
