This paper examines the over thirty proposals to consolidate U.S. federal financial regulators since 1915. It examines why most of these proposals failed and what parts of these proposals were implemented. This paper was prepared for the Volcker Alliance as background for its project on structural reform of the federal financial regulatory system. The views expressed in this paper are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the position of the Volcker Alliance. Any errors or omissions are the responsibility of the author.
