Posted: 12 Nov 2001
The essays in this collection edited by Ferran and Goodhart offer a high-level examination of some of the most important issues facing financial services regulation, and the far reaching effects of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 on the UK financial sector in the context of rapid global change. Taking an interdisciplinary approach the book includes contributions by many distinguished academic authorities on the law and economics of regulation, and some of the most influential practitioners, regulators and policymakers. It provides an authoritative analysis of underlying issues affecting the broad development of financial regulation: regulatory objectives; responsibilities of the regulated community; accountability of regulators; regulation of electronic financial markets; impact of stock exchange mergers; regional regulation within Europe; and the development of global financial regulation.
