The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act by
Call Number: KF969.58201 .A2 2012 Balcony
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed on July 21, 2010 to prevent a recurrence of 2008's dramatic implosion of large financial institutions, credit market disruption, taxpayer funded bailouts and an economic recession, but certain banking related provisions of Dodd-Frank have nothing to do with responding to the financial crisis. Moreover, Congressional leaders swept a few things into the 2,319 pages of legislation that are beyond the banking world, making the process of interpreting, drafting and implementing regulations even more complicated and time-consuming for regulators.

The New Financial Deal by
Call Number: KF969.58201 .A2 2011 Reserve
The good, the bad, and the scary of Washington's attempt to reform Wall Street. In The New Financial Deal , author David Skeel offers an in-depth look at the new financial reforms and questions whether they will bring more effective regulation of contemporary finance or simply cement the partnership between government and the largest banks. To understand what American financial life is likely to look like in five, ten, or twenty years, and how regulators will respond to the next crisis, we need to understand Dodd-Frank. The New Financial Deal provides that understanding, breaking down both what Dodd-Frank says and what it all means.
