The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 is widely described as the most ambitious and far-reaching overhaul of financial regulation since the 1930s. Together with other regulatory reforms introduced by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Reserve (Fed) and other regulators in the United States and Europe, it is going to alter the structure of financial markets in profound ways. In this talk (based on the book "Regulating Wall Street: The Dodd-Frank Act and the New Architecture of Global Finance"), Viral Acharya will provide an overall assessment of the Act in three different ways: from first principles in terms of how economic theory suggests we should regulate the financial sector; in a comparative manner -- relating the proposed reforms to those that were undertaken in the 1930s following the Great Depression; and, finally, how the proposed reforms would have fared in preventing and dealing with the crisis of 2007-2009 had they been in place at the time.
