We are pleased to announce the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law No. 111-203, Stat. 1376 compiled by William H. Manz, will be added to HeinOnline's Taxation & Economic Reform in America, Parts I & II by the end of November!
This controversial Act was signed by President Obama July 21, 2010 and represents an attempt to deal with the problem of "too-big-to-fail" financial institutions, in response to the abuses that led to the Great Recession. It imposes new requirements and creates new agencies, which will exercise authority over companies that are believed to be a risk to the nation's financial stability and give the power to obtain financial information from these companies. This Act marks an end to the era of financial deregulation.
