Professor Schoenholtz, Professor of Management Practice in the Stern Department of Economics, teaches courses on money and banking and macroeconomics, and directs Stern’s Center for Global Economy and Business.

The latest FRAC meeting took place in Washington, DC, on July 23, 2015, just after the fifth anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Act. Here are the agenda and the webcast of the public portion of the meeting.
