Dodd-Frank: A 'corporatist government-bank partnership'

by Robert Teitelman  |  Published December 28, 2010 at 1:57 PM

Here, University of Pennsylvania law school professor David Skeel discusses his new book, "The New Financial Deal." Says Skeel on Dodd-Frank: "We ended up with a very corporatist government-bank partnership focus in the legislation." He also warns that "many financial decisions, particularly in times of crisis, will be made on political grounds rather than market grounds." For more on "The New Financial Deal," read The Deal's Bob Teitelman's book review. - Katie Roof
