SBFI managing director Charles H. Green has been an occasional contributor to the Atlanta Business Chronicle on various topics for several years, primarily on issues related to banking finance. But as an outspoken advocate for arts and culture, Green also offered some opinions about local public cultural funding from time to time. The Chronicle is a division of American City Business Journals, which publishes business information in nearly 50 U.S. cities.

In late 2012/early 2013, Green engaged in an impromptu public debate with Atlanta commercial real estate lender Robert Dell through the Chronicle’s editorial pages. This discussion centered around differing views of the appropriate level of financial regulation imposed on the banking industry following the financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
Who won? Both contributors offered vigorous arguments and a valid recitation of supporting facts and banking history. Read this interesting series and judge for yourself.
