The Pew Financial Reform Project believes that to protect America's future, the causes of the financial crisis must be properly addressed now, with initiatives that constitute real financial reform. Read our latest release: Pew Applauds Introduction of Financial Reform Bill.

We will open the event promptly at 8:30 a.m. (continental breakfast starting at 8 a.m.) with Dr. Summers, the senior economic advisor to President Obama, who will offer the Administration's perspective on financial reform.

Next, Clive Crook, a senior editor of The Atlantic, will moderate a discussion by Senators Corker and Warner - both members of the Banking Committee - on the details of current legislation and what it will take to pass a bill in the weeks and months ahead.

Dr. Phillip Swagel, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and currently a visiting professor at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, will then detail what the financial meltdown cost Americans and what could happen the next time - if current legislative efforts fail.
