Video of the Make Markets Be Markets conference is finally online. Here’s the pdf of the final report. Here it is broken up by presenter at vimeo, and at youtube, with the vimeo video being higher quality.
Felix Salmon tweeted that “An 8-minute boiled-down Simon Johnson presentation is pretty concentrated & devastating.” I agree, and here it is:
And here is Elizabeth Warren’s defense of a Consumer Financial Protection Agency. Like Simon’s presentation, I had been following the argument for a long time, but seeing it all in one short presentation was really effective.
The first few minutes of Frank Partnoy’s talk where he gives you a balance sheet and asks you to guess who it belongs to is pretty damn effective too.
My presentation on how to solve the shadow banking problem is in there, walking through arguments regular readers may have seen before. All of the presenters did a great job, and they are all worth checking out. Hope you enjoy them.
