In the wake of the worst U.S. financial crisis since the Great Depression, Congress passed and the President signed into law sweeping reforms of the financial services regulatory system through the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This book provides an overview of the regulatory structure of consumer finance under existing federal law before the Dodd-Frank Act went into effect and examines arguments for modifying the regime in order to more effectively regulate consumer financial markets. Also analysed is how the CFP Act changes the legal structure, with a focus on the Bureau's organization; the entities and activities that fall and do not fall under the Bureau's supervisory, enforcement, and rule-making authorities; the Bureau's general and specific rule-making powers and procedures; and the Bureau's findings.
