Event Details

Banking after Vickers - TUC event

Date: 2nd February 2012
Time:  14:00 - 16:00
Location: Congress House, London

The starting point for our work in this area is that the Independent Commission on Banking was given too limited a mandate. Whilst it has addressed issues around preventing a repeat of the last crisis it was not really asked to consider the fundamental issue of making sure the banking system supports the real economy.  It is this latter area that we aim to focus the event around.

Our intention is to use the event to allow three experts to give their views on any problems with the UK banking sector and ideas on how to reform it to ensure it supports growth in the real economy. We will also seek to present our own views around the limitations of the ICB’s mandate. The ensuring discussion will help us shape our own priorities for future policy work around issues including a state investment bank, regional banking, credit easing and related ideas.

 

There will presentations given by:

  • Professor Richard A. Werner, of University of Southampton 
  • Dr Adam Posen, External Member, Monetary Policy Committee
  • George Magnus, Senior Economic Advisor to UBS
