This Nutshell title covers subjects such as the history and structure of the financial services industry and its regulators, the interrelationship between banking law and monetary and economic policy, the regulation of banking itself (including market regulation, international banking, and thrift institutions), securities regulation, insurance regulation, and pension funds, retirement accounts and social security. The book concludes with an analysis of emerging issues in the law of financial intermediaries, including the need for harmonized rules in an increasingly transnational market, the impact of digital currencies and transactions on regulatory policy, and the threat that international crises pose for stable banking and financial markets.
