In December 2020, Richard Cordray, the first Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, joined California Policy Lab Executive Director Evan White for a wide-ranging conversation about what economic recovery will look like for consumers in 2021.
The conversation covered topics such as:
How are consumers, and the financial markets that serve them, weathering this unique recession?
What is the role of credit, lending, lending and financial products for economic recovery?
How effective have state and federal policy responses been in helping consumers, small business owners, and workers access financial products?
What innovative approaches might benefit consumers and economic growth?
