The Office of Financial Research in the U.S. Treasury
I was a founding member and a leading organizer of an effort that resulted in a provision in the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 that creates a new Office in the U.S. Treasury, the Office of Financial Research, which has the mandate to provide better data and analytic tools to the regulatory community in order to safeguard the U.S. financial system
Part of the story of this legislative effort was reported in the Wall Street Journal and some of my views on the challenges of setting up this new Office are in summarized in a Bloomberg TV interview and a radio program on Marketplace (no longer available).
