This conference brings together leaders in law, finance, and economics to explore the challenges to investment in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the future possibilities for these government-sponsored entities (GSEs).  Panels focus on the reorganization of Fannie and Freddie, as well as the recent litigation surrounding the Treasury’s decision to “wind down” these GSEs.  Panelists explore the legal issues at stake in the wind down, including the administrative law and Takings Clause arguments raised against the Treasury and Federal Housing Finance Agency.  Panelists also look at economic policy and future prospects for Fannie and Freddie in light of legislation proposed in the House and the Senate.

About the Classical Liberal Institute

The Classical Liberal Institute is devoted to the study of the core conceptions of limited government and private property in a wide range of different modern contexts, including such topics as political and corporate governance, taxation, takings, intellectual property and various forms of regulation.  It hopes to add its voice to the public debate in order to stimulate public debate and intellectual examination of some of the key assumptions of the contemporary debate over the size and function of government.
