The book shows that every major provision of the act can be traced directly to that narrative, which ignored the government s own role and focused entirely on the errors of the private sector.

In the next Congress, whether or not the Republicans are in control of the House and Senate, there will be a concerted effort to make changes in or even repeal the Dodd-Frank Act. The essays in this book, originally published by AEI as Financial Services Outlooks, and the accompanying commentary provide a thorough backgrounder for anyone interested in financial policy.
