  8. Financial Regulation in Crisis?

    Financial Regulation in Crisis?

    Edited by Joanna Gray, Orkun Akseli
    The depositor run on the Northern Rock bank in September 2007, which led to the bank’s subsequent nationalisation was the first run on a UK bank for nearly 150 years and was a seminal moment in the unfolding global financial crisis. This book provides a detailed legal analysis of the role played by financial law and regulation during this event, and the impact the episode made on the law. The contributors to the book explore and elaborate upon the legal technique of securitisation, and how Northern Rock itself created and employed securitised financial assets. There is also in-depth discussion and analysis of the origin of the problems experienced in the wholesale interbank markets surrounding the Northern Rock crisis. Learn More

  10. Secured Credit and the Harmonisation of Law

    Secured Credit and the Harmonisation of Law

    Gerard McCormack
    This is a discerning analysis of international harmonisation efforts for secured credit law and examines the role of globalisation and finance capital in shaping such efforts. Gerard McCormack reveals how an ‘efficient’ law is often seen to increase the availability, and lower the cost, of credit, thereby contributing to international development. He considers whether the most comprehensive international standard – the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Legislative Guide (2008) – is actually suitable for adoption at the national level. In particular, he examines the hypothesis that American law and lawyers have shaped the content of the Guide to the extent that it is not suitable for translation into other laws. Learn More

  13. The Regulatory Response to the Financial Crisis

    The Regulatory Response to the Financial Crisis

    Charles A.E. Goodhart
    There are already many papers and books on the causes and course of the current financial crisis, but this is the first and, for the moment, only such book to focus on the regulatory response to it. There are two main attributes that a bank needs to remain in business during a period of turmoil, liquidity to enable it to pay its debts when due, and capital, to absorb losses. Both have been insufficient. Charles Goodhart describes what went wrong and what needs to be done, alongside discussions of deposit insurance, credit rating agencies, prompt corrective action, etc. Learn More

  14. Civil Forfeiture of Criminal Property

    Civil Forfeiture of Criminal Property

    Edited by Simon N.M. Young
    In this book, which is the first of its kind, leading experts examine the civil and criminal forfeiture systems in Australia, Canada, China, Ireland, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. In the fight against organized crime and international money laundering, there is a global trend for countries to enact forfeiture and confiscation laws that are applied through the civil process rather than the traditional criminal justice system. The authors gathered here analyze the appeal these civil forfeiture laws have for governments for their potential to disrupt criminal organizations and for their quantifiable benefits to the state. But without the usual safeguards of the criminal process, civil forfeiture laws are controversial, attracting constitutional challenges, particularly on human rights grounds. Learn More

  15. Unfunding Terror

    Unfunding Terror

    Jimmy Gurulé
    The book begins with a discussion of how shutting down the pipelines of funding is as important as dismantling the terrorist cells themselves. Next, the book covers the various means and methods used by terrorist groups to raise money, and examines how money is transferred globally to finance their lethal activities. The principal components of the legal strategy to disrupt the financing of terrorism are then discussed and evaluated. Unfortunately, the author concludes that the legal regime has met with mixed results, and finds that the sense of urgency to deprive terrorists of funding that existed following 9/11 has since dissipated. As a result, international efforts to freeze terrorist assets have dramatically declined. Moreover, the US Department of Justice has suffered several embarrassing and disappointing legal defeats in prosecuting major terrorist financiers. The author provides numerous recommendations to Congress, the Executive Branch, and the UN Security Council for strengthening the legal regime to deny terrorists the money needed to wage global jihad, acquire weapons of mass destruction, and launch another terrorist attack on the scale of 9/11.

  18. Corporate Governance and China’s H-Share Market

    Corporate Governance and China’s H-Share Market

    Alice de Jonge
    Using detailed case studies of the first nine mainland Chinese companies to be listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange, this book examines the evolution of corporate governance law and culture in China’s H-share market. A story emerges not of tensions between ideas of corporate governance from two different legal systems – Hong Kong vs mainland Chinese – nor about legal convergence as China adopts concepts from Anglo-American jurisdictions. Rather, it is a story of individual firms being pragmatic in mediating the different agendas of state-agencies that own or control them. Learn More
