Financial executives and economic experts gathered in New York City on Thursday for a forum on the effects of the economic crisis and increased financial regulation. The forum is being held by the University of Rochester’s Simon School of Business.
The Simon School’s Fourth Annual Conference in New York City is being held at The Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, drawing executives from the utilities and energy, financial services and health care industries.
The conference addresses the decade of turmoil and gridlock in the economy and the lack of consensus on how to combat it, UR officials said.
“The appropriate role of government in society is an issue very much at the fore these days around the globe and spans financial markets, fiscal and monetary policymaking, health care, and education,” Simon School Dean Mark Zupan said. “The Simon School’s major annual conference in New York City is designed to shed light on the matter by bringing together business, policy, academic, and media leaders.”
The conference also helps the Simon School make headway in its growing market in New York City, UR officials said.
The full-day seminar includes Lou Gerstner, former IBM Corp. chairman and CEO; Steve Forbes, Forbes Media chairman and editor-in-chief; and former Simon School dean Charles Plosser, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
