The meeting is open to the public; refreshments will be served.

Attendants are encouraged to read the following in preparation for the discussion:

Filipiak received his Ph.D. in Government with concentrations in American Politics and Industrial Organization and Control from Cornell University in May 2011.  His dissertation, “The Evolution of Bank Regulation: The Interplay of Regulators and the Regulated,” examined the constellation of commercial bank regulation that arose in the U.S. from 1914-1999.  While researching and writing his dissertation, Filipiak had the opportunity through the Exchange Scholar Program to spend three years at Yale University.  Previously in January 2008, he received an M.A. in Government from Cornell.  He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Hamilton College in May 2002 with a B.A. in Classical Studies and Government.  While an undergraduate, he spent a year reading politics, philosophy, and economics (PPE) and ancient history at Wadham College, Oxford.  He is currently developing his dissertation into a book and updating it to encompass recent developments in commercial bank regulation, most notably Dodd-Frank.
