Global Banking Regulation

Show Summary Details

Preview

The complexity of the global banking industry outlined in the foregoing chapters poses substantial challenges with respect to effective regulation, partly on account of lack of transparency and weak controls, and partly because of a necessarily adversarial relationship between the regulators and some of the world's brightest financial brains. The key issue is balance, to avoid both under‐ and over‐regulation, which could lead to industry dysfunction. Examines the key trade‐offs and regulatory options involved.
