Abstract

Since the beginning of the financial crisis numerous proposals have been made for the reform of public policies towards banks and other financial companies. Many individual governments have already taken action, and several official international bodies have also been active in considering reform. Reform proposals have taken two forms. One form is for new, or amended, regulations on banks and financial companies. A second is for new taxes on banks and other financial companies.
