Konczal: Dodd-Frank Reforms Get Roughed Up in Court

Konczal: Dodd-Frank Reforms Get Roughed Up in Court Play

April 11 (Bloomberg Law) -- Mike Konczal, fellow at the Roosevelt Institute and contributor to Bloomberg View, talks with Bloomberg Law's Lee Pacchia about how the implementation of the financial reform laws in Dodd-Frank have been hampered by a series of adverse court decisions. Konczal contends that these decisions are not only a setback for proponents of reforming the financial industry, but also have a chilling effect on future efforts by regulators and lawmakers. At the same time, however, Konczal feels that these courthouse victories could end up harming the finance industry. "If it looks like the law is unable to do what it needs to you will see reformers come back with much harsher provisions...that the banks successful avoided the first time around," he says.
