Treasury Secretary on the State of the Global Financial System

Mnuchin Briefs Congress on his Marching Orders

On July 27, 2017, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin delivered the Department of the Treasury’s annual report on the state of the international financial system. Mnuchin’s testimony covered many topics ranging from the Volcker Rule to tax reform and China equity caps. The hearing was sometimes contentious, with Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) sparring with Secretary Mnuchin over his apparent failure to respond to letters of inquiry from Waters. Despite the fireworks, Mnuchin laid out some of his thoughts on the state of domestic and global financial markets as well as the Treasury’s plans for recalibration of Dodd-Frank regulatory reforms.
