Publisher's Summary

The good, the bad, and the scary of Washington's attempt to reform Wall Street.

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is Washington's response to America's call for a new regulatory framework for the 21st century. In The New Financial Deal, author David Skeel offers an in-depth look at the new financial reforms and questions whether they will bring more effective regulation of contemporary finance or simply cement the partnership between government and the largest banks. This book:

  • Details the goals of the legislation, and reveals that how they are handled could dangerously distort American finance, making it more politically charged, less vibrant, and further removed from basic rule of law principles
  • Provides an inside account of the legislative process
  • Outlines the key components of the new law

To understand what American financial life is likely to look like in five, 10, or 20 years, and how regulators will respond to the next crisis, we need to understand Dodd-Frank. The New Financial Deal provides that understanding, breaking down both what Dodd-Frank says and what it all means.

    "A fine tour of this law"

    I am satisfied this author has had a good look at this law, as well as its surrounding players, history and influences. He makes a very accessible summary of all these things. I don't have to agree with every opinion, to acknowledge he has done interested persons a service. A person who followed the whole story systematically in the press, and did some good long thinking, might arrive at similar knowledge. But I am happy to pay Mr Skeel to do so much of the heavy lifting. Of course, the story is unfolding as I write this, not least in the substantial additional regulations under consideration.
