Complex Financial Institutions—the conundrum of "too big to fail?"
This seminar will examine how the financial crisis ignited the debate about whether global systemically important financial institutions are "too big to fail"; how current and proposed regulations in the US and EU have sought to address these issues; and what are the implications for the economy and capital formation from having different approaches. Class will be assessed by short papers in the form of blog postings, class participation, and a final research paper. This class does not count towards the seminars/simulations limit.
