Oxford University Press has recently published an important new work on the Principles of Financial Regulation

The regulation of the financial sector is a critical but controversial topic, particularly in the wake of the 2007-9 global financial crisis, which exposed limitations in the existing systems of regulation.  The new text analyses the policies and objectives of financial regulation, drawing on the disciplines of law, economics and finance.  It assesses specific regulatory measures - such as the regulation of consumer finance, and bank liquidity - in light of the underlying policies and objectives.  The book therefore encourages and enables the critical assessment of regulatory measures in the financial sector.  The text will be invaluable to both researchers and practitioners working in the field of financial regulation.

Five of the seven authors are current or former members of the Oxford Law Faculty - John Armour, Dan Awrey, Paul DaviesLuca Enriques, Jennifer Payne, together with Colin Mayer (Peter Moores Professor of Management Studies at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford) and Jeffrey N Gordon (Richard Paul Richman Professor of Law at the Columbia Law School).
