The New EU Financial Markets Architecture
In the past years, global financial markets have seen an unprecedented wave of regulation. Regulators worldwide have significantly expanded regulatory reach to formerly unregulated markets (e.g. OTC markets and dark pools), trading practices (e.g. short sales), and market participants (e.g. fund managers), and intensified existing regulation such as disclosure duties or the ban on presumptively abusive trading practices. In the wake of this flood of ever more detailed and far reaching rules, policy makers, regulators and capital market scholars run the risk of losing sight of the "big picture", the fundamental questions and the overall challenges of financial markets regulation: Who should regulate capital markets? Who should enforce regulation? How much deceleration do financial markets need? How intensely should we regulate the distribution of financial products? What is the proper reach of disclosure duties?
