Financial Engineering Practitioners Seminar: Professor Philip Maymin
September 15, 2014 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm EDT
Davis Auditorium, CEPSR Building

Title: Any Regulation of Risk Increases Risk

Citation: Maymin, Philip Z.; Maymin, Zakhar G. (2012), "Any Regulation of Risk Increases Risk," Financial Markets and Portfolio Management 26:3, 299-313.

Abstract:
We show that any objective risk measurement algorithm mandated by central banks for regulated financial entities will result in more risk being taken on by those financial entities than would otherwise be the case. Furthermore, the risks taken on by the regulated financial entities are far more systemically concentrated than they would have been otherwise, making the entire financial system more fragile. This result leaves three directions for the future of financial regulation: continue regulating by enforcing risk measurement algorithms at the cost of occasional severe crises, regulate more severely and subjectively by fully nationalizing all financial entities, or abolish all central banking regulations including deposit insurance to let risk be determined by the entities themselves and, ultimately, by their depositors through voluntary market transactions rather than by the taxpayers through enforced government participation.

Bio:
Dr. Philip Z. Maymin is Assistant Professor of Finance and Risk Engineering at NYU-Polytechnic Institute. He is also the founding managing editor of Algorithmic Finance.

He holds a Ph.D. in Finance from the University of Chicago, a Master's in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University, and a Bachelor's in Computer Science from Harvard University. He also holds a J.D. and is an attorney-at-law admitted to practice in California. 

He has been a portfolio manager at Long-Term Capital Management, Ellington Management Group, and his own hedge fund, Maymin Capital Management. He has also been a policy scholar, a Congressional candidate, and an award-winning journalist. 

His textbook Financial Hacking was recently published by World Scientific.

Discrete Math Seminar: Paul Seymour (Princeton)

SPEAKER: Paul Seymour (Princeton)

TITLE: Colouring Graphs with No Odd Holes

ABSTRACT: The chromatic number k(G) of a graph G is always at least the size of its largest clique (denoted by w(G)), and there are graphs with w(G)=2 and k(G) arbitrarily large.

On the other hand, the perfect graph theorem asserts that if neither G nor its complement has an odd hole, then k(G)=w(G). (An ``odd hole'' is an induced cycle of odd length at least five.) What happens in between? With Alex Scott, we have just proved the following, a 1985 conjecture of Gyarfas: For graphs G with no odd hole, k(G) is bounded by a function of w(G).

Abenomics, TPP, and the Future of Japan’s Agriculture
September 16, 2014 from 4:15 pm to 6:00 pm EDT
International Affairs Building, Room 918

The talk includes a discussion on recent reforms in Japan’s agricultural organizations in the context of Abenomics and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (a proposed free trade agreement between the US, Japan, and several other countries). Today, Japan Agriculture (JA), a nationwide agricultural cooperative which has long supported the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, faces numerous challenges, including many of the issues facing Japanese society as a whole including the aging of farmers, labor shortages, conflicts over land and property rights, perceived gaiatsu from the US via the TPP, and concerns over food safety and security. Thus, this panel will use the lens of JA and agriculture to examine broader issues facing Japan’s economy, politics, and society.

Panelists include: Gerald Curtis, Burgess Professor of Political Science, Department of Political Science; Director, Toyota Research Program, Weatherhead East Asian Institute; Senior Research Fellow at the Tokyo Foundation; Richard Katz, Editor-in-Chief, The Oriental Economist; Patricia Maclachlan, Associate Professor, Department of Government & Department, University of Texas at Austin; and Sheila Smith, Senior Fellow for Japanese Studies, Council on Foreign Relations; Moderated by Kay Shimizu, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science, Columbia University. www.columbia.edu/weai
