Regulating Wall Street: the Dodd–Frank Act


  • Matthew Richardson


In this article, I review some of the main findings described in Regulating Wall Street: The Dodd?Frank Act and the New Architecture of Global Finance, which I co-edited.1 As such, this article is based on the work of 40 or so faculty members and PhD students at New York University?s Stern School of Business (NYU Stern); I especially draw on the work in the volume of my co-editors, Viral V. Acharya, Thomas Cooley, and Ingo Walter. Moreover, in this article, where appropriate, I also mention and describe some of the updates to the implementation of the Dodd?Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act being performed by the various government agencies since passage of the act.
