Shortly before the first anniversary of the Single Supervisory Mechanism, a comprehensive book volume analyzes the far reaching reforms of financial regulation currently being implemented in Europe. The volume on “Financial Regulation: A Transatlantic Perspective”, published by Cambridge University Press, provides readers with an overview of the recent changes in the regulation of the financial sector, an assessment of the interplay with monetary policy, how the two affect the lending behavior of banks, and what challenges they pose for investor and borrower protection. The book features contributions from renowned scholars from the fields of economics and law as well as from practitioners active in the reform developments. The creation of the book was supported by the SAFE Policy Center and the Center for Financial Studies.
