New Landscape, New Challenges; Structural Change and Regulation in the U.S. Financial Sector

  • Ashok Vir Bhatia
Registered author(s):

    Given the rapid evolution of the U.S. financial sector and attendant regulatory challenges, this paper explores ways to fine-tune U.S. oversight arrangements. It surveys the financial landscape, separating a highly regulated, multi-business, and (in terms of relative asset holdings) shrinking “core†from a lightly regulated, more specialized, and rapidly expanding “periphery†explains the U.S. regulatory philosophy and structure, with its focus on core institutions and its jurisdictional complexity; highlights certain new challenges, without presuming to have all the solutions; draws out some broad policy implications, from the “30,000 foot level†and concludes by tabling and discussing one, specific, reform idea.
