About Elizabeth F Brown

I am a legal scholar, whose research focuses on financial services regulation, which covers the regulation of securities, banking, and insurance. I am specifically interested in exploring whether the United States would benefit if it consolidated some or all of the over 115 state and federal agencies that regulate financial services and moved towards a system that organized financial regulatory agencies to address specific risks (prudential, market conduct, or systemic risks) rather than organized agencies to address certain types of institutions (banks, securities firms, or insurance companies). I think that a system with a single financial regulator or a twin peaks model with one agency for prudential risks and one for market conduct risks, like in Australia, would be more effective and efficient than our current system. My financial services articles focus on two areas: first, the problems created for the United States by its current regulatory structure and how a consolidated structure could remedy these problems, and second, the international implications of the U.S. regulatory structure.
