The terms of reference for the Inquiry are very broad. The changes to the financial system since the Wallis Inquiry, and those resulting from the financial crisis, set much of the frame but clearly the inquiry has a forward looking brief. its recommendations will shape the how the system evolves.
The talk will concentrate on what Rod sees as the main issues and where Murray is likely to settle on in each of them, including issues of competition, funding, superannuation, regulation and technology.
