Committee on Capital Markets Regulation
|Committee on Capital Markets Regulation|
The Committee’s initial focus was the competitiveness of U.S. public equity markets. In November 2006, with the encouragement of U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, the committee produced an interim report regarding U.S. competitiveness.The CCMR extended its competitiveness analysis to the derivatives markets.
In the wake of the global financial crisis which began in 2007, the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation offered 57 recommendations including a reduction in the number of regulatory bodies, giving the Federal Reserve added power and creating a single U.S. Financial Services Authority with the powers now held by bank, securities and commodities regulators.
The work of the committee was organized into five task forces comprised of prominent academics and professionals specializing in law and finance (including Harvard Law, Harvard Business and Kennedy School professors) and supported by a team of Harvard Law School student research assistants.
