Dykhouse Scholar Program Speakers Series

The Dykhouse Speakers Series hosts renowned financial scholars and practitioners who share their understanding of how financial policy, supervision, and regulation interact with and, thus, shape private outcomes, including financial innovations. A principal outcome of these public lectures is to inform the design of sensible, cost-effective banking regulation that substantially reduces systemic risk and ensures robust and sustainable economic growth and development.  The Speakers Series is a component of the Dykhouse Scholar Program.
