Douglas Levene

Professor from Practice

Moral hazard and the control of moral hazard through well-designed banking regulation is one of the key questions of public policy today.  For the most part banking regulation has been left to economists and bankers. I propose to bring a legal perspective to bear on these vital questions, focusing particularly on regulation of bank capital.”
