 About the Resource:

The Third Edition of Financial Regulation: Law and Policy continues to offer students and faculty an innovative and accessible introduction to the field. Financial regulation has long been at the intersection of technological innovation, market forces, and the political economy, punctuated from time to time by financial and economic crises. Since the turn of the millennium, we have seen these pressures intensify and multiply. We have lived through the most systemic Financial Crisis in 70 years, a major shift in regulatory design, the digital transformation of the economy, including the financial sector, and a worldwide Pandemic with still uncertain economic impact, playing out against an increasingly divided and shifting political landscape. The Third Edition has been updated to keep pace with all of these changes. You will find extensive discussions of fintech, climate change, and racial equality across the Third Edition, as these topics move from the periphery to the center of the regulatory agenda. The Third Edition also adds a stand-alone Chapter on supervision, an important topic that we expect will be receiving more academic research and attention, as well as an expanded Chapter on enforcement.

Like the Second Edition, the Third Edition analyzes and compares the market and regulatory architecture of the entire U.S. financial sector, from banks, insurance companies, and broker-dealers, to asset managers, fintech companies of many types, complex financial conglomerates, and government-sponsored enterprises. The Third Edition explores a range of financial activities, including consumer finance and investment, digital and traditional payment systems, securitization, short-term wholesale funding, money markets, and derivatives. Throughout the book, the authors note the cross-border implications of U.S. rules, and compare, where appropriate, the U.S. financial regulatory framework and policy choices to those in other places around the globe, especially the UK and the European Union.
