We are pleased to introduce our two new Friday lunchtime series, open to all Barnard students. Friday Chats will alternate between the two series each week: Barnard seniors interviewing economics professors, and discussions of monetary policy. These are casual events; attend as many as you'd like and you do not need to sign up. Here's the upcoming schedule.
- February 5th, "What happened to banks' traditional financial intermediation role?"
- February 26th, "Why banks became money market dealers?"
- April 2nd, "Bank-exit: Has the COVID-19 crisis exposed MMFs as the new money market dealers?"
- May 7th, "After the COVID-19 crisis, why banks are switching their role from being dealers to brokers?"
- June 4th, "Are the private equity funds the future financial intermediaries?"
Join the Barnard Economics Department for “No Free Lunch,” a series of conversations with Econ professors, discussing everything from what they’re having for lunch to their research interests! A Barnard senior will interview a Barnard Econ professor, followed by Q&A.
