Banking Regulation

Andrew Cornford
Thursday 18 May, 2017
Banking reforms to regulate the financial sector have broadly remained inadequate. In the book reviewed, Shirreff proposes the legal separation of banking activities into three groups, a return to unlimited liability for partners in investment banks and caps on total remuneration as the radical and effective steps needed to stabilise the sector. He also favours scrapping of Basel I and II norms and the application of a financial transaction tax. The global applicability and acceptance of these proposals, however, remains uncertain.
