Jihad Dagher,(2018), “Regulatory cycles: Revisiting the political economy of financial crises”, Vox.eu, 22 March

We have seen the move toward deregulation take shape on various fronts. By most accounts, new regulatory appointees have signalled a shift toward a softer approach to financial regulation. On the legislative front, after a failed attempt by the House of Representatives to erase core financial regulations under the DFA, the Senate has voted last week on a bill that would offer regulatory relief to small and mid-sized banks.
