The Deregulation of the Banking and Securities Industries

In this book, the product of a conference held at New York University's Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions, the industry's leading practitioners and theoreticians addressed the key issues raised by the Securities Acts Amendments of 1975: market design and operations. Experts considered the importance of efficient price discovery as the objective of the trading system and examined the interrelationship between the number of market makers and the liquidity of the market.

Turning their attention to the actual market systems and regulatory structure, they discussed the competitive environment of the markets, provided an in-depth view of arbitrage and upstairs trading, and focused on multiple regulators of the securities industry.
