Description

This chapter from The Death of Capital is a call for change that discusses projects and initiatives to rejuvenate the economy and provide a basis for sustained growth. We have developed a regulatory system that does exactly the opposite of what it should be doing-favors speculation over production; obscurity over transparency. This chapter addreses hot-button topics including:
  • How to Improve Capital Adequacy
  • Executive Compensation Reform
  • Modern Monetary Policy and Regulation
  • Enhancing Financial Transparency
  • Solutions for Credit Default Swaps, Derivative, and Structured Investment Vehicles
