Consumer Financial Services and Inequality - Transatlantic Seminar

  • 10:00AM to 12:00PM
  • Online

Over the past few decades, financial services have been one of the most socially sensitive parts of the consumer economy on both sides of the Atlantic. The 2008 financial crisis and turbulences that followed revealed deep dysfunctionalities of consumer financial markets. Notably, these markets turned out to be highly susceptible to further exploitation and deepening of social and economic inequality. The Seminar will attempt to diagnose these problems from both the European and the US perspectives and try to unwrap the potential of law in remedying inequality in consumer finance.

In the past two decades, the Internet Archive has become a beacon of free and open access to knowledge. As the Internet Archive turns 25, The Yale Information Society Project and the Wikimedia Initiative on Intermediaries and Information present a conversation with Brewster Kahle, on his vision for the future of digital libraries and universal access to knowledge.
