Avoiding the Next Crisis: Getting Financial Regulation Right

The current global downturn was caused, in part, by a failure of financial regulation. That much is clear, but there is far less agreement over exactly what changes are needed going forward. What are the lessons of the past year, and what principles should guide the emerging new regulatory system? Dean Baker, Beth Brooke, Roger W. Ferguson Jr., Robert K. Steel, Peter J. Wallison, and Thomas J. Wilson discuss with moderator Clive Crook.
