With the rise of digitization and technological advancements, there's a significant opportunity to reform the payment system to benefit the economy, promote financial access, and facilitate commerce and trade. However, these innovations also bring regulatory challenges and questions about the role of government and central banks.  The event will delve into the current state of U.S. payments and emerging digital asset technologies that could disrupt them.   The event is a collaboration between Brookings, Cornell Law, and Vanderbilt Law.

Discussion topics topics include public and private real-time payment systems (FedNow and Real-Time Payments), cryptocurrencies, stablecoins, central bank digital currencies, and more.
