Post-Crisis Policies and Politics: Slow Recovery to another Bust?

The government continues to execute ineffective policies rather than focusing attention on the fundamental problems underlying the banking and housing industries and the broader economy. Dodd-Frank says tighten standards, but the same politicians who orchestrated Dodd-Frank are calling for a loosening of credit standards. And the policy pendulum has swung in the opposite direction, morphing from lax standards and poorly conceived affordable housing policy to overregulation and strictly enforced multifarious compliance.


Community bankers now believe that the single most important risk facing their banks is regulatory. Read this paper to learn about:

  • Post-crisis politics and policies and how they could adversely affect commerical banks and the general public.
  • The mixed signals commercial banks are receiving.
  • The new challenge for commercial banks.
  • The direct and indirect costs of compliance.
  • Shadow banking.
  • Where we go from here.
