The obvious causes of the current market meltdown and credit crisis have been much discussed and analyzed from the perspective of a real estate bubble and lending deterioration. However, underlying the mania and its subsequent panic lay fundamental and structural market problems that will persist (and potentially worsen) if not addressed. Objective, independent, and data and analysis driven, the Restoring Financial Stability presents a blueprint to repairing the financial markets architecture and addresses regulation, government sponsored enterprises, enhanced regulation of complex financial institutions, hedge funds, corporate governance, compensation, fair value accounting, derivatives, centralized clearing, short selling, systemic risk, public banking, the bail out and where it should begin and stop, and international alignment of finance sector regulation.
