Harvey J. Goldschmid Professor of Law
Columbia Law School
Kathryn Judge is a sought-after expert on financial markets and regulation, and the book grew out of her research into the origins of the 2008 financial crisis. Her findings on how middlemen in capital markets contributed to the meltdown led to a bigger exploration of how middlemen impact other sectors of the economy including retail, including real estate, food, cars, and philanthropy. She has been featured by NPR, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Washington Post, Bloomberg, Politico, The Hill, American Banker and more.
