Welcome Paul Krugman readers. I’m Mike Konczal, and I’m a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute working on financial reform (among other topics). I blog here and at New Deal 2.0; New Deal 2.0 has a lot on financial reform these days and in the days ahead, so I’d recommend checking it out. I’m on twitter here.
Here is my Current State of Financial Reform paper (Update: link fixed), which will hopefully bring you up to date on some of the key issues to watch for as the Dodd Bill and the final financial reform bill is debated in Congress.
Here is The Make Markets Be Markets Report by the Roosevelt Institute, along with video of the presentation of each chapter. This should get you caught up on any specific topic you’d like to learn more about. (I co-wrote a chapter with Raj Date on a 21st Century Glass-Steagall and shadow banking.)
I’m one of several guest-bloggers at Ezra Klein’s blog through Tuesday, and then I’m back here and at New Deal 2.0 working on financial reform. Hope you stayed tuned.
