The crisis of 2007-2008 has brought issues of financial regulation to the forefront. Even before this though, rapid changes in trading technology, the globalization of finance, the growth of trading in new derivative securities and the increasing rate of financial innovation have made financial regulation an important issue.
The Center for the Study of Financial Regulation has been created to encourage rigorous study of the economics of financial regulation. Among other things, we are interested in examining the costs and benefits of specific regulations, the impact of regulation on financial practice, and the political process by which regulation is enacted. We intend to bring clear economic thinking to bear on current regulatory rules while informing and engaging financial economists, regulators, politicians, and the public. We will pursue this mission through conferences, speakers, white papers and by encouraging scholarly work on topics related to financial regulation.
