Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act

Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act

Author: Nathan L. Morris Format: Hardback Release Date: 18/10/2011

Beginning in 2007, U.S. financial conditions deteriorated, leading to the near collapse of the U.S. financial system in September 2008. Major banks, insurers, government-sponsored enterprises and investment banks either failed or required hundreds of billions in federal support to continue functioning. Congress responded to the crisis by enacting the most comprehensive financial reform legislation since the 1930s. The Dodd-Frank Act creates a new regulatory umbrella group with authority to designate certain financial firms as systemically significant and subjecting them to increased prudential regulation, including limits on leverage, heightened capital standards and restrictions on certain forms of risky trading. This book reviews issues related to financial regulation and provides brief descriptions of major provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act.

People's Warrior John Moss and the Fight for Freedom of Information and Consumer Rights

People's Warrior John Moss and the Fight for Freedom of Information and Consumer Rights

Author: Michael R. Lemov, Ralph Nader Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/05/2011

It is hard to believe that there was a time, not long ago, when there was no right to obtain government information, no protection against hazards in children's toys and other consumer products, no federal safety standards for motor vehicles, and no insurance to protect an investors' money and securities in brokerage accounts. These and other consumer rights were created only after fierce political battles in the decade between 1966 and 1976. People's Warrior is the untold story of that era and one of its towering leaders, Congressman John Moss. Based on previously undisclosed materials and interviews with key players of the time People's Warrior tells the story of a stormy decade in America, one in which key laws, such as the Freedom of Information Act and the Consumer Product Safety Act were enacted by Congress, despite overwhelming political opposition. It is also the improbable story of one man's life and determination. Moss fought for twelve years, against three presidents and at times his own party, for a freedom of information law that has stood the test of time and been copied around the world. Although at first stymied by special interests, he won sweeping consumer protection reforms. He went on to challenge Wall Street in an intense battle to enact major new investor protection laws. What happened to Moss and his progressive agenda in later decades, and what the future may bring for that agenda, make up the final part of this compelling story of a man and an era.

Market Integration and Public Services in the European Union

Market Integration and Public Services in the European Union

In a period when the nature and scope of the European internal market is hotly contested, this collection offers a topical analysis of the most pressing issues relating to market integration and public services in the EU. As the debate continues over the balance between state control and market freedom, questions are also raised about the relationship between EU regulation and national policy choices and the 'joint responsibility' of the Union and the Member States. Outlining the most important current issues relating to market integration and public services in the EU, this book also addresses the underlying, systemic questions of the relation between public services and markets, and services and the consumer. Chapters also examine the application of state aids and procurement law to public services. The final two chapters focus on two public service sectors where the mix of Treaty rules, case law, and legislation has operated in rather different ways: public service media and health services

Product Liability in the Asia-Pacific

Author: Jocelyn Kellam Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/11/2009

This 3rd edition describes product liability laws in 24 countries of the Asia-Pacific region including all of the large economies and populations. Expanded to cover Macau, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, SriLanka, and the US Affiliated Jurisdictions in the Pacific, these jurisdictions offer additional insights, showing the various influences and distinct legal cultures which pervade the law of the region. A chapter on insurance in the region is also included. The product liability laws of the Asia-Pacific region are characterised by diversity. A mosaic of legal rights exists under contract, tort and statute in most countries. In many of these jurisdictions, product liability is only just beginning to emerge as a significant body of law and with many countries going through a period of economic development; some legislatures are only now beginning to recognise the need to address consumer protection and the legalliability of manufacturers in the region. The range of approaches to product liability is a reflection of the multiplicity of legal systemsin the region. Widespread reform of product liability laws has taken place inthe Asia-Pacific region since the 2nd edition was published. Part of satisfying a foreign client's needs, is understanding the legal environment in which they operate. With the globalisation of the commercial and legal marketplaces, legal practitioners must have knowledge of other legal systems in which their clientsaEURO (TM) operate. The reach of product liability has become worldwide in the 21st century.This book provides in one volume that knowledge.
