On June 19, GEG held a day-long workshop with the Blavatnik School of Government on “Financing Globalization – Lessons From Economic history” in Oxford. We examined the extent to which historical insights about the evolution of global banking can and should affect the ongoing banking regulatory reform debate. Academics and practitioners participating included Cyrus Ardalan, Hugo Banziger, Amar Bhide, Marc Flandreau, Charles Goodhart, Philipp Hildebrand, Harold James, George Kounelakis, Peter Kurer, Kevin O’Rourke, Catherine Schenk, George Soros, Sir John Vickers, and Ambassadors Jaguaribe and Bhagwati.
