Mesa Redonda sobre a reforma de Wall Street: nota negativa

Quatro analistas internacionais dão nota negativa à finreg (regulação financeira) americana, nem mesmo um “B”, como Paul Volcker, um dos inspiradores da equipa Obama, ele próprio desiludido. Alguns buracos da nova lei Dodd-Frank, assinada pelo presidente norte-americano a 21 de Julho, dariam para que um Boeing 747 passasse por eles, ironiza um dos entrevistados.

Financial Reform: Is the Volcker Plan Missing the Target ?

Former Federal Reserve (Fed) Chief Paul Volcker’s so called Financial Reform Plan, released after President Obama’s speech decrying ‘fat cats’ on Wall Street, could be one of the most important prescriptions for the post-financial crisis. Its in/correctness and/or in/efficiency may well be critical for reform of the entire global financial system. Unfortunately, the plan of the former Fed head seems to be either lacking key elements, or is insufficient as currently constituted. We interview two of today’s most important economics bloggers, University of Oregon Economics Professor Mark Thoma, editor of Economist’s View, and Dr. David Caploe, Chief Political Economist of the Singapore-based, who holds a Ph.D. in International Political Economy from Princeton.
