A certain amount of regulation in banks is necessary. Without regulation there would not be anything to prevent all kinds of financial crises. This however, does potentially pose a problem of over-regulation. As the government regulates the banking industry they could potentially take this too far but I believe heavy regulation has much less potential for drastic disastrous events to occur than when banks are working with a large amount of deregulation. Examples of problems involving banks are plentiful when it comes to deregulation, for instance, banks would come into trouble when depositors ask for large withdrawals and the banks would not have enough cash to keep up. In these cases before the Federal Reserve System banks would appeal for “bank holidays” where they would close for a time being to catch up and make agreements amongst themselves, which occurred during the Panic of 1907. The Fed was created at that point to hopefully ease the minds of depositors as a reserve bank to loan money to member banks in last resort circumstances and it worked. (Krugman) Other reasons banks need to be heavily regulated is the potential for unethical practices. If banks, for example, begin approving every loan regardless of credit risk this may cause the bank to fail eventually when the loan defaults which has implications on everyone involved including those who have money deposited in the bank that no longer can retrieve this money. This leads to the government having to step in with funds or buyouts which leads to the government losing money and having to deal with the ill practices of that bank. The same could be said if the banks begin making risky and ill-advised investments with the depositors’ money. During the 1920s bank failures averaged over 550 a year and this threatened the collapse of the system. (Gordon) It is events like this that make it necessary for…...

...Case Study 1 Kala Bontrager September 14, 2013 AC502:01 Regulation Professor Elaine Lerner In the case between Kim and Son, there is a large deal of consideration that must be made before one can determine who will win the case. Consideration is a means of a legit contract. In Introduction to Business Law, Beatty and Samuelson explain that a contract must benefit both parties, either by promise made to give something of value or by a bargain to both parties being made. This specific case, based on the rules of consideration, does reflect an adequate contract made by both Kim and Son. Between both Kim and Son, there was an agreement made on sides that are beneficial to all parties, a statement (no promise said), and the terms of each side of the deal and there are benefits/bargains to both parties a result of the lawsuit. Both Kim and Son have agreed to a part of the contract. Son offered to pay back what was lost to the best of his ability and Kim in return, said he would not sue. In this particular case though, it has been concluded that neither Kim nor Son fulfilled their end of the contract. Because of this it would mean that the contract was non-existent. Kim promised not to sue and he has, just as Son stated he would repay to the best of his ability, and he ended up not paying anything. One thing to consider is maybe it wasn’t Son’s ability to pay, resulting in why he couldn’t fulfill his end of the contract. Does this mean he broke the contract, if he did......

...GM 520 Regulation-Week 2 The department of agriculture food and nutrition division is proposing changes to current nutritional guidelines for the national breakfast and lunch program. This regulation change interests me because I have young children who attend public school. The other reason that I am affected by this regulation is that I am a health care worker who is extremely worried about people today and how they eat. This does not directly affect my profession, but I can hope that children who eat healthier will grow to make better food decisions, thus cutting down on the epidemic of obesity. The regulation proposal is to change the current school nutrition guidelines to match with the 2005 “Dietary Guidelines for Americans”. The recommendation comes from the National Institute of Medicines report “School Meals: Building Blocks for Healthy Children”. The proposed regulation would increase availability of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat milk with school nutritional programs. It is also proposed to change the levels of allowable sodium and saturated fats in the food choices. My comment is that nutritional programs are a benefit to children’s growth. Currently there are children who come from impoverished homes and they count on school meals for complete food nutrition. It is also vital to at a young age participate in healthy food choices for future healthy eating habits. Thus, this program should help in the long run with reduction in......

None of the above. Which of the following is a "security" for federal securities law purposes? A. Shares of corporate stock. B. Limited partnership interests. C. Fractional undivided interests in oil. D. All of the above Alliance Leasing Corp. located and recruited more than 1,500 investors from all over the U.S. to invest in an enterprise that used investor money to buy commercial office or kitchen equipment, that was then leased out to third-party lessees. Investors' funds were to be placed in special accounts at either Wells Fargo Bank or Merrill Lynch, and Alliance was to use the capital to "engage in a single or multiple transactions with a lessee." In several cases, Alliance bundled the leases together in packages of several million dollars each, which were purchased by institutional investors. The lease payments by the lessees were then to be paid to the investors on a monthly basis for two years with a balloon payment at the end of the two-year period. Alliance represented that investors would earn a return of 14% per year (as would Alliance, which was splitting the profits with investors 50/50) and that the investment was "low risk." After Alliance went bankrupt, investors sued its principals for securities fraud. Defendants claimed that no "securities"......

Why or why not? * Refer to capital asset ratios discussed in lecture Equity: the difference between our assets and liabilities. Leftover after we pay off our liabilities. i.e. Home equity: value of the home (asset) - mortgage (liability).

The Effects of Bank Regulation on the Relationship Between Capital and Risk

...Article The Effects of Bank Regulation on the Relationship Between Capital and Risk ALESSANDRA TANDA Department of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods, Università degli Studi di Milano, Via Conservatorio, 7, Milan 20122, Italy. E-mail: alessandra.tanda@unimi.it Capital regulation acts as an external force in the determination of bank capital and risk levels. Changes in the regulatory framework can influence banks’ decisions. Starting from the debate of the prudential regulation after the financial crisis, this paper reviews the main empirical contributions on the role of capital regulation in the determination of banks’ capital ratios and risk exposure to evaluate bank behavior. Capital and risk decisions seem to be effectively influenced by regulation, although results may vary according to factors such as time period, country, and the type of capital analyzed. Comparative Economic Studies (2015) 57, 31–54. doi:10.1057/ces.2014.35; published online 22 January 2015 Keywords: bank regulation, capital, Basel, risk, literature review JEL Classification: G2 INTRODUCTION The latest financial crisis has highlighted how bank capital regulation is necessary for the stability of the financial system. But also, it appears that it is not sufficient to ensure that banks’ decisions, in terms of risk and capital, are consistent with the aims of regulation. Regulation acts as an external force in the capital optimization process as banks set......

Theory & Practice of Regulation of Anti-Money Laundering for Banks & Nonbanks

...Theory and Practice of Regulation of Anti-Money Laundering for Banks and NonBanks Hayford Kwesi Annor Manager, Risk & Compliance/AMLRO, ABii National Savings & Loans Ltd. Doctorate of finance student, SMC University, Switzerland. FAAFM, Ch.FE, ACCPA, MBA, BSc, HND h.k.annor@gmail.com Abstract A deregulated financial sector is free to accumulate and allocate funds from anywhere irrespective of the nature, form, intent and source. Without regulatory oversight, this poses zero risk to banks and nonbanks no matter how they finance the capital structure. In the real world, banking is an outcome of interactions between the regulator and the regulated. Regulatory consequences apply for failure to comply with the acceptable standards of best practices of banking regulation which include fines, sanctions, jail terms and revocation of the banking license for willful or non-willful noncompliance. The physical disposal of proceeds of funds’ from crime with aim of separating same, through creation of layers to disguise trails of the source and make it seem legitimate undermines the integrity of the financial system. It is required of the banking sector to build a comprehensive framework that identifies, assesses, monitors, mitigates and reports perceptions of suspicious activities of money launderers under the discipline of the regulator to avoid being sanction for the related offences. This paper reviews theory to link practice towards money laundering risk......

...The first topic I have chosen is “Should regulations for home schools be changed.” I chose this topic because there has been debates for years questioning the effectiveness of children whose parents have chosen to home school them. Excessive budget cuts to educational programs and overcrowded classrooms have led many parents to homeschooling. While many individuals feel that home school hinders students from learning at their grade level which ultimately withdraws social interaction with fellow peers, other individuals feel that home schools provide much needed structure that focuses on the child. The audience for this topic would be parents of school aged children who are thinking of homeschooling their children. The preliminary thesis statement for this topic is “State regulations for home schools should be changed to ensure at-risk children aren’t neglected, students are socially active in the community, and educators have access to adequate funding.” The two sources I plan to use are HSLDA and As Home School Numbers Rise, Regulations Fall an article from The Kansas City Star. The second topic I have chosen is “Should minors who commit violent crimes be tried as adults.” Chose this topic because violent crimes committed by juveniles is on the rise; and many of these crimes are being given a slop on the wrist because of the minors age at the time. Many of these juveniles become repeat offenders because the judicial system has not held them accountable for their actions....
