Good morning. I am excited to welcome everyone to today’s symposium on “Behavioral Economics and Consumer Financial Services Policy.”
Good afternoon. Thank you all for coming today. Today’s symposium is part of a broader effort on the part of the Bureau to engage experts in various fields on legal and policy issues. An important motivation for the symposia series is to give these legal and policy issues a fresh look, and that is precisely what we are doing and will do.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (Bureau) announced today that it will hold a symposium on behavioral law and economics on September 19 at 9 a.m. entitled Behavioral Economics and Consumer Financial Services Policy. The event will be webcast on the Bureau’s website.
