Ronnie Phillips will focus on the varying viewpoints on why we need Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). The discussion will begin with President Biden's recent Executive Order on ensuring responsible development of digital assets. Ronnie's starting point will be through Henry Simons' "financial good society" and how CBDCs fit in this framework. While it is not necessary, we recommend reading the following papers for review:
