AEI Experts on Debit Swipe Fees

On Wednesday June 29, the Federal Reserve board is set to meet to consider a final rule to limit the amount banks can charge merchants when a debit card is used. This rule was required by the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill and has been a major point of contention.

American Enterprise Institute (AEI) scholars are available to comment on this new regulation.

Alex Brill is a former senior adviser and chief economist to the House Ways and Means Committee. He also served on the staff of the President's Council of Economic Advisers (CEA).
