The financial sector is in a flux. The functioning of the financial system has become one of the most acute public policy issues of our time. The banking crisis that we have observed challenges policy profoundly. What is the desirable regulatory response? The answer is far from obvious, substantial disagreement exists. For this reason the Amsterdam Center for Corporate Finance has dedicated this issue of its Topics in Corporate Finance series to analyzing the key regulatory issues involved.
Professor David Llewellyn, one of the world’s most renowned experts on the functioning of financial institutions and markets, provides in this booklet an in-depth analysis of the functioning of the financial sector, how it evolves, what frictions exist and what type of regulatory responses are desirable.
This publication aims to build a further understanding on what is needed to rectify the weaknesses in the financial sector. We hope you enjoy reading it, and that this publication may contribute to bridging the gap between theory and practice.
