SHOW ME:

The crash of the stablecoin TerraUSD last month prompted talk among policymakers of tighter regulations for cryptocurrency markets, a world that was built around the ideas of independence and privacy. In this week’s Kenan Insight, experts who participated in a recent webinar discuss how regulation can move crypto forward and what form new rules and infrastructure might take.

What is a stablecoin, and why did the one known as TerraUSD break the buck and crash? Kenan Institute Chief Economist Gerald Cohen moderates this timely crypto conversation with University of California-Berkeley Haas School of Business Professor Christine Parlour, UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School Professor Eric Ghysels and Chief Revenue Officer Michael Coscetta of Paxos.

The hits just keep coming for the cryptocurrency market following last week’s collapse of TerraUSD. The stablecoin, created to maintain its value equal to the U.S. dollar, today is worth an estimated 11 cents – a drop in market value from nearly $19 billion to roughly $1.3 billion. How could this have happened, and what could it – along with the wider market selloff – mean for the future of crypto? We invite you to join us at 11 a.m. ET this Friday, May 20, for a discussion with key experts.

Managing Hybrid Work

As we return to a new normal post-pandemic, organizational and individual work arrangements will have to be designed to take into account that employees will range from not wanting to give up their autonomy of working from home to those who will want to come rushing back to the physical office. However, a large swath of the workforce will be somewhere in the middle. They would like to mix and match the benefits of working remotely and the advantages of coming to physical offices.

Please join us for an exclusive conversation with Worthington Industries President and Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Rose on Wednesday, February 16. This discussion is part of the Dean’s Speaker Series, hosted by Kenan-Flagler Business School Dean Doug Shackelford.
