(p.78) Chapter 3 The Future of Banking Regulation
Balancing the Banks

Jean-Charles Rochet

Princeton University Press

This chapter takes a more detailed look at the flaws in the prudential framework that was in place when the crisis erupted and at the required remedies. It begins by discussing the Basel Accords and the breakdown of the Basel prudential regime. It then explains the necessary reforms. It argues that three types of reforms are necessary: (1) a much more powerful and independent banking supervisor; (2) much simpler, and easier to apply, prudential regulation; and (3) the installation of a prompt corrective action regime for the management of crises, including a special resolution regime for systematically important financial institutions.

Keywords:   financial crisis, financial regulation, financial policy, Basel Accords, banking regulation, prudential regulation
