GCFP Policy Teas

The Cambridge/Boston academic, policy and practitioner communities are fortunate to include many people with deep expertise and interest in financial policy. Yet opportunities to gather for in-depth conversations about policy are infrequent. The goal of this new periodic discussion series is to create a forum in which to learn about, and critically and collaboratively think through, a variety of financial policy issues.

Unlike a traditional academic seminar, the discussion leader generally will not present a completed paper. Rather, they will choose a topic, lay out some of the issues they are thinking through, suggest pre-readings, and manage the discussion. Unless otherwise indicated, these sessions will take place at the GCFP offices.
