Since the crisis of the fall of 2008, many afflicted nations have tried to rethink and reformulate their financial-sector regulations. As a consequence an assortment of legal structures and institutions have come into being. These include the Dodd-Frank Act, Basel III, the European Banking Authority, the Financial Stability Oversight Council, the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive, and the Systemic Risk Council, among others. Some long-established agencies, including the U.S. Federal Reserve System, the Commodity Futures Trading Corporation, and the Securities and Exchange Commission, now have new powers. Some regulators, most notably the Office of Thrift Supervision, have been closed.

After six years of bank rescues, stress tests, painful austerity programs, debt foreclosures, and other difficult adjustments, it is time to take stock of where we are. Is the financial system more resilient today than before? What progress has been made on transparency, capitalization, liquidity, industrial concentration, Too Big To Fail, conflicts of interest, mortgage-origination rules, systemic risk, and any other associated conditions or factors that were known to have played a role in the recent near-collapse of the global economy? What, if anything, still needs to be done?

This workshop will bring together academics, practitioners, and regulators in a friendly atmosphere to explore these issues.

• We aim to edit the first volume of a series on contemporary economics and politics.
• This workshop will be organized only with plenary sessions. Presenters will have 25 minutes to present their paper/chapter, followed by 10 minutes of questions from the other volume contributors.
