Abstract:     
This Article discusses the traditional responsibilities of the Securities and Exchange Commission as a market regulator and the future prospects for the continuation of these mandates. The jurisdictional conflicts between the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the reasons why they have remained separate agencies are set forth. The Article also suggests several areas where securities market regulation has failed and new areas where the Securities and Exchange Commission, or a combined Securities and Exchange Commission and Commodity Futures Trading Commission, should focus with respect to market regulation. The areas discussed are broker-dealer capital adequacy, credit and other derivatives trading, short sales, hedge funds, and credit rating agencies.
