     Anti-money laundering laws require financial institutions to monitor and report on all their customers, particularly for large transactions or "unusual" transactions. These requirements result in nearly 15 million reports each year and cost the U.S. economy $7 billion annually according to the Institute for International Economics, yet there is no evidence that these laws have hindered criminal activity or terrorism. Is it time for a new approach? Critics complain that anti-money laundering laws reduce the competitiveness of U.S. financial institutions, compromise civil liberties, and represent an inefficient allocation of law enforcement resources.

     What is the best way to reform and improve anti-money laundering laws? Panelists will discuss this important question at the May 10 forum.

Wednesday, May 10, 2006
 12:00 noon-1:45 p.m.
Lunch will be provided
