Financial Markets Reform

The global financial crisis and ensuing economic recession have been at the top of the agenda over the past year. As a consistent, constructive critic of the instruments and behaviors that are now widely understood to have led to the meltdown of the US and global financial systems, IPD has been at the forefront of efforts to analyze the causal roots of the current crisis.

Our Financial Markets Reform Task Force has convened the global best and brightest to advise leaders and policymakers on crafting immediate solutions that minimize economic damage, as well as proposing reforms to the system of global economic and financial governance. The work of this group has been at the heart of the debate about reforms in international economic institutions and in domestic and global regulatory structures needed to promote global equity and good global governance, thus reducing the likelihood of recurrence.
