ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a financial regulations bill in the U.S. which is considered the most sweeping regulatory overhaul of the financial industry since the Great Depression. Sponsors of the bill, Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd and Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank, believe that the bill will, at the least, increase consumer protection and reduce inherent risks of some financial practices. A major feature of the legislation is the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
