Kling on Financial Regulation

Gaps and weaknesses in the supervision and regulation of financial firms presented challenges to out government's ability to monitor, prevent, or address risks as they built up in the system. No regulator saw its job as protecting the economy and financial system as a whole. I have to disagree with the last sentence. The Fed has always seen this as its job. It did when I worked there, and it did both before and during the crisis. I also disagree with the tone of the first sentence, which makes it sound as though the problems were caused by unregulated firms. In my view, the problems were poor mortgage underwriting ...

Eigentlich hatte alle Welt erwartet, dass sich insbesondere die US-Banken einsichtig zeigen, nachdem sie maßgeblich die Finanzkrise mit verursacht und damit die größte Wirtschaftskrise seit dem 2. Weltkrieg ausgelöst haben. Für Bankeninsider ist es indes wenig überraschend, dass das Gerede über mehr Transparenz und Vertrauen das bleibt, was es ist: Gerede. Die Praxis sieht nämlich anders aus, wie fast täglich neue Beispiele zeigen. In den Monaten seit der Lehman Pleite ist besonderes ein Finanzmarktinstrument verstärkt in das öffentliche Bewusstsein vorgedrungen, die so genannten Credit Default Swaps genannt (CDS).

What Financial Re-Regulation?, Arnold Kling | EconLog | Library of ...
In two weeks, I am supposed to speak on a panel entitled "Financial Re-regulation." My question is, what re-regulation? To me, re-regulation means you would reverse some step that you took toward deregulation. But the new financial reform bill does not reverse any of those steps, as far as I know. For example, the new bill does not repeal Gramm-Leach-Bliley, a 1989 law that ratified the de facto breakdown of the separation between commercial banking and investment banking, which is often blamed for the crisis. You would think that for symbolic reasons, if nothing else, you would repeal that law and go back to ... market research, surveys and trends


Greg Mankiw's Blog: June 2009
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of U.S. voters at least somewhat favor the Democrats’ health care reform plan, while 45% are at least somewhat opposed. While the overall numbers favor the plan, those with strong opinions tilt the other way. Twenty-four percent (24%) strongly favor the plan, but 34% are strongly opposed.... Among all voters, just 12% think their health care coverage will get better if the plan is passed while 37% expect it will worsen. Thirty-seven percent (37%) expect their coverage to stay about the same if the plan proposed by the president and congressional Democrats becomes law. industry trends, business articles and survey research

Posner argues that Congress is trying to fix the financial system without fully understanding it. He also points out that by attacking bankers, politicians are distracting attention away from their own role in the current crisis.

Boehner v Obama: A Preview of 2011?
With control of the House of Representatives up for grabs in the midterms, Tuesday morning brought a speech at the City Club of Cleveland, Ohio, where House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, openly discussed being the next Speaker as he called for President Obama to fire Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and National Economic Council director Larry Summers.
