Taught by Professor Connel Fullenkamp | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Economics & Finance Courses
Who is in charge of monitoring the financial markets? How are the rules of the “game” enforced? Consider the fundamental reasons that financial institutions require regulation, and learn some of the conflicts that arise between entities charged with this task. Then, see how a cycle of regulation and deregulation began in the 1930s and continued through the financial crisis of 2008 and beyond.
