Abstract

This article discusses the regulation of derivative financial instruments. It notes that the government has neither come to a conclusion as to the necessity of regulation nor which agency would have jurisdiction. It also suggests that one tool that regulators could use as an enforcement tool is the "shingle" theory. Next, it provides history and analysis of this theory. Finally, it examines the current state of affairs regarding regulation of derivatives.
