Every business relies on well functioning and transparent capital markets to grow and thrive. We need to replace our outdated, broken regulatory structure with a more effective, comprehensive, streamlined structure. Today, at our Third Annual Capital Markets Summit (watch online), we are issuing a declaration outlining eight actions the administration, Congress, and the business community must take to help restore and strengthen our nation’s capital markets.
To modernize the regulations governing our capital markets, in a way that puts the economy, jobs, and investors first, the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress need to enact reform that:
- establishes systemic oversight;
- promotes comprehensive and sound regulation;
- enhances transparency and market integrity;
- provides meaningful investor and consumer protections;
- promotes global stability, efficiency, and growth;
- maintains innovation;
- develops sound enforcement mechanisms; and
- builds robust international cooperation.
By outlining this plan for comprehensive, sound regulation, the Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness seeks to accelerate support for the right reforms.
