Repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act

November 10, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

David LaPlante

The Glass Steagell Act, passed during the Great Depression in response to bank failures, separated commercial banks from investment banks. The Act was repealed in 1999. The presentation describes the crises that gave rise to the Act and its demise, as financial companies and their political influence grew in the 1980s and 1990s.
