Fordham Students Critique the FSB's G-SIFI Proposal

CSFME congratulates each of the teams on their excellent work.

Author: David Schwartz

As part of CSFME's Regulatory Outreach for Student Education (ROSE) program, four teams made up of Fordham University graduate and undergraduate students researched, drafted and submitted comment letters to the Financial Stability Board's January 2014 consultative document entitled Assessment Methodologies for Identifying Non-Bank Non-Insurer Global Systemically Important Financial Institutions.  Each of the teams analyzed the consultative document and critiqued it from their own unique perspectives as graduate and undergraduate students in economics and business.  Though the exercise was carried out as part of their school curriculum, and with the support and encouragement of CSFME's Executive Director, Ed Blount, the comment letters are entirely the work of the student teams.  Given the extremely high quality of the work, Fordham agreed to have the students submit the letters on the university's letterhead.

CSFME Encourages Fordham Students to Let Their Voices Be Heard

March 13 Web Meeting Invites Fordham Business Students to Submit Comments to the FSB

Author: David Schwartz

In a web based meeting today, CSFME's Executive Director Ed Blount and Senior Policy Analyst David Schwartz met with a group of Fordham University's graduate and undergraduate business students to invite them to participate in the real world of regulatory policy.  The focus of this meeting was the Financial Stability Board's recent proposal regarding the "Assessment Methodologies for Identifying Non-Bank Non-Insurer Global SIFIs."  After a brief discussion of some of the goals of the FSB's proposal and some the most provocative issues raised by the consultative document, Messrs. Blount and Schwartz challenged the students to research and formulate their own positions on the consultative document with an eye on submitting formal comment letters to the FSB.  

This web-based meeting was part of CSFME's Regulatory Outreach for Student Education (ROSE) program designed to give college students studying business and economics the opportunity to meet financial policy makers and regulators, and experience some practical application of what they are learning in their classes.
