Founded in 2006, the Committee undertook its first major report at the request of the incoming U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, Henry M. Paulson. Over ten years later, the Committee’s research continues to provide policymakers with an empirical and non-partisan foundation for public policy.
The Committee is an independent 501(c)(3) research organization, financed by contributions from individuals, foundations, and corporations. The Committee’s membership includes thirty-seven leaders drawn from the finance, business, law, accounting, and academic communities.
The Committee Co-Chairs are R. Glenn Hubbard, Dean of Columbia Business School, and John L. Thornton, Chairman of the Brookings Institution. The Committee’s Director is Hal S. Scott, Nomura Professor and Director of the Program on International Financial Systems at Harvard Law School.
The Committee measures its success by the ability to change policy in line with its recommendations and has an excellent reputation in all quarters of the U.S. government.
