Seminar - 3 hours. The course provides students with a high-level overview of several different areas of financial regulation, with an emphasis on banking regulation, issues of supervision and enforcement, including matters related to regulatory failure and financial crime. We strive to understand the nature of regulated financial institutions and markets, the potential risks created by those institutions, and how the regulatory system attempts to address those risks. Throughout, the US financial regulatory system is examined in comparative perspective.
