Dodd-Frank is the largest overhaul of the financial regulatory system since the Great Depression. It is 2,319-pages long, compared to Glass-Steagall (47 pages), Gramm-Leach-Bliley (145 pages), and Sarbanes-Oxley (66 pages). It will take financial institutions more than 58 million hours to file all the necessary paperwork — the equivalent of 29,000 full time employees working year round on compliance. It creates multiple new regulatory bodies in Washington costing taxpayers millions of dollars each year.

Dodd-Frank’s effects on the economy, industry, and consumers are far-reaching. AEI scholars Peter Wallison, Phil Swagel, Charlie Calomiris, and Alex Pollock, have been following implementation closely. Here is a collection of their work and other selected pieces on the topic.
