On Tuesday, March 12, 2013 the Chamber’s Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness will host The Importance of Cost-Benefit Analysis, exploring the role of cost-benefit analysis in the financial regulatory system and the rule-making process. Independent regulators can ensure that regulations meet rigorous, transparent analytical standards, without compromising their independence in any way. Yet, almost three years into Dodd-Frank implementation, studies have found that many rules have inadequate or no cost-benefit analysis. Under pressure to complete their work within tight legislative timelines, agencies are cutting corners which leads to impractical and overly burdensome regulations that could be avoided with a careful economic analysis. Esteemed legal scholars, regulatory experts, and other thought leaders will discuss the role and importance of cost-benefit analysis in regulating capital markets.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m., with the program following from 9:00 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Visit the following link to register: www.regonline.com/CostBenefit
