Financial Reform in the U.S.: A Critical Survey of Dodd-Frank and What is Needed for Europe


  • Raphaële Chappe
  • Willi Semmler


We review the major provisions of Dodd-Frank, focusing on the monitoring of systemic risk, the limitation on proprietary trading, the regulation of the hedge fund industry, credit rating agencies, and the rules applicable to derivative trading. We compare these provisions with the recent regulatory changes in the EU, and critically assess the potential impact of Dodd-Frank.
