On 23rd January 2018, Nicholas Beale Chaired a seminar at the London School of Economics' Systemic Risk Centre entitled Reflections on Financial Regulation: How Might it Change?

Speaker: Peter Andrews (former Chief Economist, Financial Conduct Authority)

Peter Andrews talked about consumer protection, prudential and market efficiency regulation, followed by discussions with the panellists. The themes included:

  • Organising markets so that they need less regulation
  • What follows behavioural economics
  • Not applying all the science needed to understand decision making and therefore markets - is there a tractable unified theory?
  • Limits on what regulation can achieve
  • What does real world behaviour and contracting imply for the approach to regulation?
