Norm Champ on
Norm Champ on "Going Public: My Adventures Inside the SEC & How to Prevent the Next Devastating Crisis"
Wednesday, February 22, 2017, 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

Going Public chronicles former SEC official Norm Champ’s experiences and how they shed light on the regulatory process and government policy-making. When he joined the SEC in 2009, the agency was under immense pressure to reign in Wall Street. There was little doubt they had to fix rules that permitted bad behavior. Champ was eager to be part of this positive change, but he soon realized not everyone shared his enthusiasm for ushering in reform.

Talk followed by Q&A and book signing. $5 tickets include Museum admission; members and students free. Register today.
