Independent analysis of newly enacted financial legislation—and what it might mean for the world economy
"A fascinating, lively, and thoroughly readable guide to the Dodd-Frank Act that pierces the cloud of confusion that hangs over so much of the financial reform debate. It is extremely timely and valuable, and should be required reading for all policymakers, investors, and students of finance. What makes the book so valuable is that it not only analyzes the scope of the Act, in a punchy, lively style, but it also discusses its potential impact. More important, the book analyzes what is not covered in the Act—and where the potential challenges to the financial system still lie."
—Gillian Tett, U.S. Managing Editor, Financial Times
"The crisis of 2008 confronted even well-educated Americans with a flood of incomprehensible financial vocabulary, describing novel financial institutions and practices most of us had never heard of before. Now we have the 2,300-page Dodd-Frank Act, designed to provide the needed repair. Will it do so? What else will it do? How can we even start to think about these basic questions? Regulating Wall Street addresses these questions in a clear, direct style, taking us through the many parts of the Act one at a time, and providing informed, cogent economic analysis of each. A valuable standard source for future discussion."
—Robert E. Lucas, University of Chicago, 1995 Nobel Laureate
"Take the faculty of one of the best finance departments in the world. Ask them to analyze the new U.S. legislation on financial regulation, and to think about what the new law gets right, what it gets wrong, and how it is likely to shape the future of the financial system. With a bit of luck, you get this very impressive book. An absolute must-read."
—Olivier Blanchard, Chief Economist, International Monetary Fund
"Regulating Wall Street goes a long way toward clarifying the intent of the various provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act and evaluating both its effectiveness and limitations. The need for effective implementation by agencies is appropriately emphasized. Not a quick read, a useful reference work on an enormously complex piece of legislation, dealing with an even more complex financial reality."
—Paul Volcker, Chairman of the Economic Recovery Advisory Board and former Chairman of the Federal Reserve (1979–1987)
T he Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 is everywhere described as the most ambitious and far-reaching overhaul of financial regulation since the 1930s. The Act was born of the severe financial crisis of 2007–2009 and the Great Recession that followed. It attempts to fix parts of the financial architecture that failed in the crisis. The Act is already being denounced by some for not going far enough to curb the risky behavior of financial institutions, and condemned by others for going too far and hampering innovation and efficiency in financial markets.
Following Restoring Financial Stability: How to Repair a Failed System, a forensic analysis of the financial crisis of 2007–2009, forty NYU Stern faculty have produced this in-depth analysis of the Dodd-Frank Act. It provides a comprehensive description of the important parts of the Act and a balanced assessment of its likely success as the new regulatory architecture for the financial system.
The Dodd-Frank Act, together with other regulatory reforms introduced by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Reserve, and other regulators as well as financial sector reforms being put in place in Europe, is going to alter the structure of financial markets in profound ways. The editors argue that the Dodd-Frank Act provides much-needed improvements in financial regulation but falls far short of what could have been achieved.
Today, it seems that everyone's taking credit for predicting the near collapse of America's financial system that started in 2007. But, rather than looking to the past at what went wrong and who was right, in Regulating Wall Street: The Dodd-Frank Act and the New Architecture of Global Finance, leading academics from New York University's Stern School of Business—each a specialist in a relevant discipline—turn their attentions to the new legislation to regulate Wall Street in the future, and whether the resulting regulations will promote growth and prevent another near collapse of our financial system, or contribute to its catastrophic failure.
Edited by Viral Acharya, Thomas Cooley, Matthew Richardson, and Ingo Walter, this book is essential reading for policymakers, business executives, and anyone who can benefit from having a clear, coherent, and rigorous framework for thinking about the future of global finance.
