Book Launch - Understanding Financial System Reform - What Next?

A book launch is organized by the Bertelsmann-Stiftung, the European Trade Union Institute, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Brussels and Re-Define.

Speakers:

Sony Kapoor, Re-Define
Udo Bullmann, MEP, Coordinator ECON, SD Group, European Parliament
Sven Giegold, MEP, Coordinator ECON, The Greens/EFA, European Parliament
David Wright, Deputy Director DG Internal Markets, European Commission (tbc)

The book, written by ex-investment banker and Re-Define Managing Director Sony Kapoor, is targeted especially at non specialist stakeholders such as consumer groups and trade unions with a strong interest in holding the financial system to account and in ensuring that the reforms being enacted are sufficient and effective in getting the financial system to serve the real economy.

 

The concepts presented in the book are also useful to policy makers who are often so busy making policy that they can lose sight of the big picture. The book provides an easy reference in that it compiles, explains, analyses the major financial sector reform proposals made thus far.
