Abstract

This essay introduces and comments on three articles in the Virginia Law & Business Review that address important questions of international competitiveness and U.S. securities regulation: the evolution of the Rule 144A market as a way for foreign issuers to tap U.S. capital without submitting to a mandatory disclosure regime; the emergence of international accounting standards to which the SEC seems eventually ready to submit; and "best execution" differences between trading platforms in the U.S. and the E.U.

Keywords: securities markets, international competition
