Sesquicentennial Celebration Sponsored by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Boston University Center for Finance, Law & Policy
At the height of the Civil War, Congress passed and President Lincoln signed into law acts establishing a national currency, a national banking system, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to oversee the new system.
As part of the commemoration of the OCC’s 150 years, the agency and the Boston University Center for Finance, Law & Policy co-sponsored a conference in Boston on March 31, 2014. The conference, “Building on 150 Years: The Future of National Banking,” focused on the impact of recent experience on the banking and regulatory landscapes, and how that experience may affect the future of the U.S. and global banking systems.
This all-day conference featured an outstanding roster of speakers from the banking, academic, and regulatory worlds, including Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry, former FDIC chairperson Sheila Bair, current president and CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable Tim Pawlenty, and former Senator Chris Dodd and former Congressman Barney Frank, who discussed the landmark legislation that bears their names.
