Macro Musings 45: Hester Peirce on Reframing Financial Regulation

Hosted by David Beckworth of the Mercatus Center, Macro Musings is a new podcast which pulls back the curtain on the important macroeconomic issues of the past, present, and future.

Hester Peirce is a Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and director of Mercatus’ Financial Markets Working Group. She joins the show to discuss the new Mercatus book, Reframing Financial Regulation: Enhancing Stability and Protecting Consumers, which she coedited. The book examines the problems with the United States’ current financial regulation regime (including the Dodd-Frank Act) and offers alternative policies that rely less on a centralized regulation and more on market discipline.

The Mercatus Center is hosting a book release event for Reframing Financial Regulation: Enhancing Stability and Protecting Consumers on February 23. For more about the event, click here.

Reframing Financial Regulation is currently available for purchase at Amazon and Kindle. You can also download a PDF copy of the full book here.
