The financial system is a critical engine that keeps the economy vibrant. In recent years, however, worries about too-big-to-fail and too-small-to-borrow have led many to question whether financial markets are working properly.

A new Mercatus book, Reframing Financial Regulation: Enhancing Stability and Protecting Consumers, edited by Hester Peirce and Ben Klutsey reimagines the financial regulatory framework from the ground up to create a system that works for everyone including consumers, investors, and small business owners.

Please join the Mercatus Center on Thursday, February 23 for a discussion with several of the authors of Reframing Financial Regulation. With the possible repeal of Dodd-Frank looming, this event will provide an opportunity to hear practical solutions on how the financial regulatory framework can best be reformed via a thoughtfully-regulated, market-based financial system that facilitates risk sharing, provides access to capital efficiently, and enables households to save for the future.
