Fifth Annual Municipal Finance Conference

On July 12, this year’s Municipal Finance Conference will be held for the first time at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.   The other sponsors are the Brandeis International Business School and the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis.

The purpose of the conference is to bring municipal finance professionals together with academics to encourage useful research and better practice.  This year’s program will include several papers on financial distress and other challenges for municipalities.  The keynote speaker will be Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla of Puerto Rico.

As a discussant, I will respond to a paper  that attempts to account for the potential benefits of future refundings within the interest cost of a bond or bond issue.

I understand that there may still be openings for the conference.  Click here for more information, and to register.  I hope to see you there.
