Our Mission

The Center for the Study of Financial Regulation at the University of Notre Dame has as its mission to promote sound economic analysis of current and proposed financial regulation. Poorly conceived financial regulations can impose large costs on the economy and may harm America’s leadership in the financial industry by driving financial transactions offshore. We believe that more independent economic analysis of financial regulation is needed.
