Two weeks ago, in MetLife v. Financial Stability Oversight Council, District Judge Rosemary Collyer (D.D.C.) sent waves through the financial services industry and among scholars of cost-benefit analysis.

by Guest Blogger — Thursday, June 11, 2015

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is coming up on its fifth birthday next month. Seldom has a law’s meaning been so little determined five years out from passage—especially a law running hundreds of pages.

It’s a pleasure to participate in the launch of this new blog. I’m looking forward to the dialogue and interaction with my co-bloggers and readers. I’ll be blogging mostly about central banking, financial regulation, and public finance (where each of these interacts with “regulation” as our overarching theme), although I may indulge from time to […]
