Program Description:
From Dodd-Frank to Basel III and beyond, financial regulators are struggling to keep pace with the rapid evolution and increasing complexity of global finance. To combat the systemic risks that revealed themselves during the financial crisis, regulators have implemented new rules covering everything from bank capital requirements to derivative and commodity markets. While some argue that regulators have not gone far enough, others argue that new regulations are unfairly prohibitive or even anti-competitive. Against this backdrop, what is working and what needs to change in global financial regulation? How do we mitigate excessive risk taking and prevent another crisis while simultaneously keeping America's financial institutions competitive in the global economy?
