The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law on July 21, 2010 and is considered the most sweeping financial regulatory reform to be passed since the regulatory reform that was enacted after the Great Depression. What conditions made this legislation necessary? How exactly has Dodd-Frank changed the financial services industry? Is it constitutional? Does this legislation adversely affect economic liberty? Our panel will address these questions and more on Wednesday May 15, 2013, at the Irish Exit in midtown Manhattan.
