About the Book

The Financial Services Revolution is a collection of essays presented at the fifth annual conference of the same name held in Washington. The 1987 conference focused specifically on the regulation of depository institutions, and from that conference grew this book. The emphasis at the conference, and hence the book, was placed on the regulation of depository institutions and especially banks. This book is divided into three broad areas. It begins with papers that examine the history of banking and bank regulation, both in the United States and Canada. The second section considers whether the current regulatory structure can be viewed as successful in meeting its stated goals. The third section looks to the future and to what sorts of changes might be appropriate.
