Financial Market Oversight and Regulation
Governments responded to the financial crisis by creating new agencies to monitor financial risk and regulations aimed at preventing future bank and credit crises. How well have these efforts worked?
The institute has sponsored a conference organized by Douglas Diamond and Amit Seru and supported research that assesses the costs and benefits of this regulation. (See feature: The Paradox of Frozen Liquidity.) Collectively, these three projects will help add to our understanding of what we’ve experienced, respond to future market disruptions, and potentially add to our capabilities to predict where crises may arise.
