Controlling Capital : Public and Private Regulation of Financial Markets (Hardcover)
about this item
Controlling Capital examines pressing issues in financial market regulation, in the face of continuing systemic concerns and widespread wrongdoing in financial markets. Two broad perspectives are deployed. The first is a critical examination of contemporary efforts to overcome the pre-crisis legacies of regulatory forbearance, gatekeepers' conflicts of interest, and compromised occupational cultures in banking and other financial markets. The second addresses regulation in financial markets, through professional associations, national and international arbitration and, controversially, hedge funds' investigations, denunciations and short-selling. Contributors to the book explore how these public and private tendencies are evolving, how they might work together, and their relation to policies in the European Union, the United States and internationally. Bringing together a distinguished group of international experts, this book will be a key text for all those concerned with the normative issues that arise at the intersection of financial markets, law, culture and governance.
