Luigi Zingales : Courses and Seminars
Theories of Financial Regulation
This seminar will focus on the intersection between law and finance. We will survey the major theories that explain why and how the government should regulate financial markets. Attention will be given to the movement to deregulate financial markets, the financial crisis of 2008, and the Dodd-Frank Act. The seminar is jointly taught by a law professor and a business school professor with expertise in financial economics. Law students may opt for two credits (series of short reaction papers) or three credits (major paper).
