International Banking Structure and Regulation: Current Challenges
LAW BK 940
A review of the basic regulatory structure governing the conduct of international banking activities from both a home and host country viewpoint. U.S. law and regulation will be examined as it applies to expansion by U.S. banking organizations outside the United States and to entry and expansion into the United States by non-U.S. banking organizations. Key provisions of the Federal Reserve Act, The International Banking Act of 1978 and the Foreign Bank Supervision Enhancement Act of 1991 will be discussed. Comparisons will be drawn with the regulation of international banking activities in the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. Underlying policies and concepts will be analyzed.The course will then proceed to an analysis of international bodies that have been playing a greater role in the establishment of international standards of regulation and supervision, including the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the Financial Stability Institute, and the Joint Forum, as well as such private institutions as the Institute of International Finance. Finally, we will assess the causes that led to the global financial crisis and the role of the G-20 in both advocating and coordinating key efforts of reform at global, regional and national levels.
