Market Regulation: Balancing Risks and Rewards

One King West Hotel

1 King St. West

Toronto, ON

M5H 1A1


The regulation of financial markets has been a “top of mind” topic since the global near-meltdown of 2008 – for good reason. Regulation of financial markets isn’t easy. To get it right, we need to balance giving those markets enough freedom to raise money to spur on economic growth, against restraining the tendencies of those markets to become too leveraged, and too risky. The School of Public Policy has been a leader in driving that discussion. Our work on traditional and exempt market regulation has been controversial and talked about.

Join Prof. Jack Mintz as he leads panelists from Yale, the Haskayne School of Business and the Bank of Canada in creating a framework for market regulation that strikes the right balance, and keeps Canada stable, and prosperous.
