Empirical Foundations of the Iron Law of Financial Regulation

Lecturer: Prof. Roberta Romano, Yale Law School

Note: Due to the current situation (COVID-19), the Evening Lecture will take place as a hybrid event.


Lecture held by Prof. Roberta Romano, Sterling Professor of Law at the Yale Law School and Director of the Yale Law School Center for the Study of Corporate Law, in the series „Evening Lectures“ of the Department of Business Law of the University of Innsbruck. The event will be hosted and moderated by Univ. Prof. Susanne Augenhofer, LL.M. (Yale).  

This lecture will discuss the Empirical Foundations of the Iron Law of Financial Regulation. After the financial crisis of 2008, and in general following a crisis, legislators often enact crisis-induced financial regulations without having completed a thorough analysis of the crisis and its causes. The legislators then create a complex, regulatory ratchet of often very strict rules. These regulations have many, and often unintended, consequences. Prof. Romano analyses the impact of such “crisis-regulations” by comparing long-term empirical data of different financial regulations and assessing their effective impact.
