Sponsored by the Insurance Law Center and the Connecticut Insurance Law Journal
The global credit crisis unearthed a string of failures throughout U.S. financial services regulation. State and federal agencies vied in a race to the bottom in lending standards and regulators sacrificed consumer safety for short-term profitability. Investor protection laws were ignored and much of mortgage finance operated in the shadow of the commercial banking system, free from rudimentary regulation. Meanwhile, proposals for an optional federal insurance charter are gaining steam. This conference examines why U.S. financial regulation broke down and how that system should be reformed.
