Posted September 06, 2019 by CUNA Advocacy

The CFPB has announced that it will host a symposium on behavioral law and economics on September 19 in Washington, D.C.  

The symposium is the second in a series exploring important consumer financial services issues. The first was held in June and focused on defining “abusive acts or practices.”

According to the Bureau, the symposia series is “aimed at stimulating a proactive and transparent dialogue to assist the Bureau in its policy development process, including possible future rulemakings.” 

The symposium will feature remarks by CFPB Director Kathy Kraninger and Deputy Director Brian Johnson followed by two panels of experts.  The panels will include discussions of the “methodological foundations of behavioral economics” and “behavioral law and economics and consumer financial protection.”  

The event will be livestreamed on the Bureau’s website but individuals wishing to attend in person may RSVP here.
