The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act – adopted two years ago last month – represented the largest single expansion of government control over the private sector in two generations. Yet, not only have the hundreds of new regulations it calls for proven difficult or impossible to implement, but many threaten to make the financial marketplace more, not less, susceptible to another crisis.
Join us as we discuss these issues with C. Boyden Gray, a central figure in a pending legal challenge against the law, as well as a panel of experts who will address the threats posed to consumers and the economy by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Volcker Rule, the crackdown on derivatives and the regulatory burden on community banking.
