For better or worse, the direction of financial regulatory reform post-crisis is not just the product of competing substantive views on the merits of regulatory choices. It is also the product of competing interests -- with competing pocketbooks.

This conference brings together legal scholars, regulators, judges, practitioners, economists, political theorists and other social scientists to discuss the role of the political process in financial services regulation and the role of money in both.
