John C. Bogle: Financial Reform: Will it Forestall a Future Crisis ...
The financial reform act that was signed into law this week -- while imperfect -- represents an important first step in attempting to preclude or mitigate future financial collapses. But increased regulation and oversight alone will be insufficient to prevent a recurrence of the recent financial crisis. The causes of the collapse are no secret. While it is often claimed that "victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan," the defeat suffered by investors in our devastating financial crisis seems to have, figuratively speaking, a thousand fathers. The Federal Reserve kept interest rates too low for too long ... market research, surveys and trends

(also known as the “NYU Stern Report”) takes a multifaceted perspective. The book features 18 papers, written by 33 New York University and NYU Stern faculty members.

Each paper also suggests reforms intended to minimize the possibility of similar future crises. Central to the case for reform is the emergence over the past 25 years of LCFIs (large, complex financial institutions), which by virtue of their size and ... market research, surveys and trends

The Securities and Exchange Commission today said that it will issue a “no action” letter to allow issuers to omit credit ratings from registration statement filed under Regulation AB. It was reported earlier that asset-backed issues were being shelved because credit rating agencies were not allowing ratings to appear in registrations or prospectuses due to concerns over the liability of being considered an “expert” in sections 7 and 11 of the Securities Act after the Dodd-Frank bill was signed into law yesterday. “To remedy the current shut-down of the public ABS markets as a result of the repeal of Rule 436(g), we request that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

For a more in depth discussion of how each of these factors combined to produce the global financial crisis, see the E-Book Section entitled “What Gave ...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Will More Financial Regulation Prevent Another Crisis?
The one thing we know about the financial "reform" now moving toward what looks like eventual congressional approval is that it will be oversold, says economist Robert Litan of the Kauffman Foundation. We will be told that it will forever prevent a repetition of the recent financial crisis; that it will root out corruption on Wall Street; that it will eliminate "bailouts"; that it will protect consumers against greedy lenders. In the present anti-Wall Street mood, no one wants to be accused of coddling America's money merchants. What can we really expect? History counsels caution. Every financial reform, ...
