About this product
- DescriptionThe recent collapse of the mortgage market revealed fractures in the credit market that have deep roots in the system's structure, conduct, and regulation. The time has come for a clear-eyed assessment of what happened and how the system should be strengthened and restructured. Such reform will have a profound and lasting impact on the capacity of Americans to use credit to build assets and finance consumption. Moving Forward explores what caused the crisis and, more important, focuses on the path ahead. The challenge remains the same as ever: protect consumers, ensure fairness, and guarantee soundness of the financial system without stifling invation and overly restricting access to credit and consumer choice. Nicolas Retsinas, Eric Belsky, and their colleagues aim to stimulate debate based on analysis of the opportunities and challenges presented by the various components of global capital markets: financial engineering, risk assessment and management, specialization of financial intermediation, and marketing methods. The contributors-leaders in business, government, academia, and the nprofit sector-discuss new research and ideas about the future of credit markets, including how improvements might be shaped by industry leaders. Contributors include John Campbell (Harvard University), Marsha J. Courchane (Charles River Associates), Ren Essene (Federal Reserve Board), Allen Fishbein (Federal Reserve Board), Howell E. Jackson (Harvard Law School), Melissa Koide (Center for Financial Services Invation), Michael Lea (San Diego State University), Brigitte Madrian (Harvard Kennedy School of Government), Nela Richardson (Harvard's Joint Center for Housing Studies), Rachel Schneider (Center for Financial Services Invation), Jennifer Tescher (Center for Financial Services Invation), Peter Tufa (Harvard Business School), and (Peter M. Zorn (Freddie Mac).
