Oral histories interview with former SEC Commissioner and Chief Economist Charles Cox, currently Compass Lexecon Executive Vice President.
Presenter Dr. James Overdahl discussing in 2011 the role of cost-benefit and impact analysis in the Dodd-Frank rulemaking process: "I think it is important when you say 'effective' that we know what we mean by 'effective.' We want the process to produce better rules, but I think also the goals are broader than that. We want transparency in the process and accountability. What I mean by accountability is that if commissioners and regulators want to disregard the economic analysis, they have to put their reasons on the record and they have to be accountable for that decision."
New papers in the museum collection on the regulation of over-the-counter derivatives and hybrid instruments, including the December 7, 1998 memo from Doug Elmendorf: What market failure would be addressed by further government regulation of risk-taking of financial institutions?
