Charlotte: Money, Trust, and Central Banking Legitimacy in the Age of Quantitative Easing

March 16, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

The Charlotte Warburg Chapter and the Minda de Ginzburg Center for European Studies at Havard University will host a breakfast briefing with Dr. Benjamin Braun, JFK Memorial Fellow at the Center for European Studies at Havard University.

There will be a no charge for ACG members and a $15 charge for nonmembers to attend this event. RSVP here no later than Monday, March 13.

Benjamin Braun is a Political Economist who was previously based at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies (MPIfG) in Cologne. He holds degrees in Political Science and Economics from the University of Munich and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Warwick and the Université Libre de Bruxelles. For his work on the European Central Bank he received the Sir Walter Bagehot Prize for Best Dissertation in Government and Public Administration, awarded by the Political Studies Association in the UK. During his time at the Center for European Studies at Harvard University, Dr. Braun will start a new research project on “asset manager capitalism.” Through the lens of comparative political economy he will study how the rise of asset management companies transforms the investment chain, with a focus on the ability of this emerging configuration to provide long-term capital to firms. In addition, he will continue to work on central banking, including as a member of the research team on a Transparency International project on the transparency and accountability of euro-area governance.
