    "Reviving Regulatory Reform"

    Christopher Demuth
    Distinguished Fellow, Hudson Institute

    The regulatory reform movement, which ran approximately from 1975 through 1985, was intellectually robust and philosophically broad-based, and it achieved significant victories in practical politics. The policy landscape looks very different today. Federal regulation has been growing dramatically (even price controls are making a comeback), and the political debates appear highly partisan. But in fact the recent growth of regulation has been bipartisan (it was at least as pronounced under George W. Bush as it has been under Barack Obama). This lecture will diagnose the causes of regulatory growth and evaluate the leading reform proposals currently being considered. It will compare today’s central policy issues with those than animated the old regulatory reform movement, and argue that the earlier era produced important insights that could usefully be applied today.

    "Financial Regulatory Reform: Innovation in Regulatory Design and Implementation"

    Diana Farrell
    Director, McKinsey Center for Government

    Following the financial crisis and the ensuing Great Recession, revamping the financial regulatory regime (within political realities) was an imperative. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (DFA), designed by the Administration and passed in July 2010 was one of President Obama's signature legislative successes. In this seminar, we will explore the context for framing financial regulation, approaches to and discussions of critical tradeoffs in modernizing oversight of the system, new regulatory tools and challenges facing regulators in implementation.

    "Regulating the Shadow Banking System"

    Andrew Metrick
    Michael H. Jordan Professor of Finance and Management
    Yale School of Management

    The "shadow" banking system played a major role in the financial crisis, but was not a central focus of the recent Dodd-Frank Law and thus remains largely unregulated. This seminar proposes principles for the regulation of shadow banking and describes a specific proposal to implement those principles.
