The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will hold a symposium on behavioral law and economics Sept. 19 at 9 a.m. (ET) titled “Behavioral Economics and Consumer Financial Services Policy.” The event will be webcast on the Bureau’s website, and individuals can also RSVP to attend in person.
This the second in a series announced earlier this year to explore consumer protections in today’s dynamic financial services marketplace.
The series is aimed at stimulating a proactive and transparent dialogue to assist the Bureau in its policy development process, including possible future rulemakings.
The first symposium, on June 25, covered the Dodd-Frank Act’s prohibition on abusive acts or practices.
The event will feature remarks by Bureau Director Kathleen L. Kraninger and Deputy Director Brian Johnson. The first panel will include a discussion of the methodological foundations of behavioral economics.
The second panel will be a discussion of behavioral law and economics and consumer financial protection.
A complete list of speakers and streaming information can be found on the CFPB’s website.
