Press release: “Its time to put global finance back in its proper place as a tool to achieving sustainable development. This means substantial downsizing, careful re-regulation, universal social protections, and an active, permanent employment-creation program. Therefore, the 2013 Minsky Conference will address both financial reform and poverty in the context of Minskys work on financial instability and his proposal for a public job guarantee. Panels will focus on the design of a new, more robust, and stable financial architecture; fiscal austerity and the sustainability of the US economic recovery; central bank independence and financial reform; the larger implications of the eurozone debt crisis for the global economic system; improving governance of the social safety net; the institutional shape of the future financial system; strategies for promoting poverty eradication and an inclusive economy; sustainable development and market transformation; time poverty and the gender pay gap; and policy and regulatory challenges for emerging-market economies.”>Building a Financial Structure for a More Stable and Equitable Economy – A conference organized by the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College with support from the Ford Foundation. April 1719, 2013
