Ballard Spahr’s Alan Kaplinsky interviewed Arthur E. Wilmarth, Professor Emeritus at GW, about crypto and its regulation at this week’s episode of the Consumer Finance Monitor podcast. I learned some things from the discussion that I plan to incorporate in my Payments Systems class next spring. Some of the discussion drew on Professor Wilmarth’s forthcoming article in the Washington U. Law Review, We Must Protect Investors and Our Banking System from the Crypto Industry. By discussing consumer legal scholarship on the podcast, and thus increasing consumer financial attorneys’ awareness of scholarship, Alan is providing a great service to both law professors and practicing lawyers.
