Finance, Fannie Mae, and Fintech: The Work of Dr. Chris Brummer
When it comes to economics, Dr. Chris Brummer has dedicated his career to exploring how finance and governmental regulation go hand-in-hand and how they can be used to strengthen an economy. As a former attorney in both New York and London and a present Faculty Director at the Institute of International Economic Law at Georgetown University, Dr. Brummer has made a name for himself as an expert in his field. With over a decade of real-world and academic experience in the development of financial policies it comes as no surprise that in February of 2021, Dr. Chris Brummer was appointed to the board of directors for Fannie Mae, a government organization helping to make mortgage financing more available to middle and lower-income Americans.
As an educator, Professor Chris Brummer has learned first hand the importance of research. Not only is researching a large part of his work, but he also recommends to any new entrepreneurs to do their homework before embarking on a new venture. In the spirit of improving the knowledge of both business owners and policymakers alike, Dr. Chris Brummer founded Washington DC’s Fintech Week. Fintech, which stands for financial technology, is a week dedicated to allowing lawmakers, businesses, and nonprofits an opportunity to discuss how financial technology and the field of financial policy can be improved and strengthened.
For those interested in learning more about the work and research Dr. Chris Brummer has done in the field of economic law, there are several books available.
