About This Activity

On Tuesday, March 12, 2013 the Chamber’s Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness will host an event exploring the role of cost-benefit analysis in the financial regulatory system and the rule-making process. 

Independent regulators can ensure that regulations meet rigorous, transparent analytical standards, without compromising their independence in any way, but almost three years into Dodd-Frank implementation, studies have found that many rules have no or inadequate cost-benefit analysis.   Under pressure to complete their work within tight legislative timelines, agencies are cutting corners, leading to impractical and overly burdensome regulations that could have been avoided with a careful cost-benefit analysis.

Esteemed legal scholars, regulatory experts, and other thought leaders will discuss the role and importance of cost-benefit analysis in regulating capital markets. 

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m., with the program following from 9:00 a.m. until 12:45 p.m.

Event Fees:
Non-Chamber Member: $45
Chamber Member: $30
Embassy or Non-Profit: $20
Federal Government Employee: Complimentary*
