Rev. 1811 In What More Can Be Done to Deter Violations of the Federal Securities Laws', David Becker of Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP and former General Counsel and Senior Policy Director of the U.S SEC discusses recent criticism of the SEC that focuses “on the severity of sanctions the SEC obtains in its settlements with wrongdoers.”  Becker argues that “severity does not guarantee efficacy.”  Becker “suggests that there is probably little to be gained from increasing sanctions and that the SEC probably would be better served by focusing its efforts on increasing the likelihood that certain violations are punished and by redoubling its efforts to move more quickly.”

  • Do Labyrinthine Legal Limits on Leverage Lessen the Likelihood of
           Losses' An Analytical Framework
    • Authors: texaslrev_admin
      Abstract: Read Full Article (PDF) Book Review appears in Issue 7 Profs. Andrew W. Lo and Thomas J. Brennan Posted on June 24, 2012 90 Texas L. Rev. 1775 A common theme in the regulation of financial institutions and transactions is leverage constraints. Although such constraints are implemented in various ways—from minimum net capital rules to margin requirements to credit limits—the basic motivation is the same: to limit the potential losses of certain counterparties. However, the emergence of dynamic trading strategies, derivative securities, and other financial innovations poses new challenges to these constraints. We propose a simple analytical framework for specifying leverage constraints that addresses this challenge by explicitly linking the likelihood of financial loss to the behavior of the financial entity under supervision and prevailing market conditions. An immediate implication of this framework is that not all leverage is created equal, and any fixed numerical limit can lead to dramatically different loss probabilities over time and across assets and investment styles. This framework can also be used to investigate the macroprudential policy implications of microprudential regulations through the general-equilibrium impact of leverage constraints on market parameters such as volatility and tail probabilities.

  • Governments as Shadow Banks: The Looming Threat to Financial Stability
    • Authors: texaslrev_admin
      Abstract: Read Full Article (PDF) Book Review appears in Issue 7 Prof. Viral V. Acharya Posted on June 24, 2012 90 Texas L. Rev. 1745 Governments often have short-term horizons and are focused excessively on the level of current economic activity, disregarding whether financial-sector regulation designed to achieve it leads to long-term instability. Their short-term objective can be well served through policies governing competition and risk taking in the financial sector. By allowing excessive competition, providing downside guarantees, and encouraging risky lending for populist schemes, governments can create periods of intense economic activity fueled by credit booms. This way, governments effectively operate as “shadow banks” in the financial sector, a moral hazard that can have even more adverse consequences than risk-taking incentives of the financial sector. This government role appears to have been at the center of recent boom and bust cycles, especially in the housing sector in the United States through the presence of government-sponsored enterprises (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), and continues to pose a threat to financial stability.

  • Too Complex to Depict' Innovation, "Pure Information," and the SEC
           Disclosure Paradigm
    • Authors: texaslrev_admin
      Abstract: Read Full Article (PDF) Article appears in Issue 7 Prof. Henry T. C. Hu Posted on June 24, 2012 90 Texas L. Rev. 1601     Since the Depression, the Securities and Exchange Commission’s totemic philosophy has been to promote a robust informational foundation for private decision makers, thereby furthering efficiency and corporate governance.  As a necessary corollary, the SEC’s approach has been incremental.  The SEC has generally not ventured beyond the realm of information to that of substantive decision making, as to stock prices or otherwise.
          This disclosure philosophy has always been substantially implemented through what can be conceptualized as an “intermediary depiction” model.  An intermediary—e.g., a corporation issuing shares—stands between the investor and an objective reality.  The intermediary observes that reality, crafts a depiction of the reality’s pertinent aspects, and transmits the depiction to investors.  Securities law directs that depictions are to be accurate and complete.  “Information” is conceived of in terms of, if not equated to, such depictions.
          This Article’s core thesis is that the longstanding intermediary depiction model is increasingly undermined by innovations in financial theory and practice, and that the disclosure paradigm must metamorphosize to comprehend a spectrum of what can be referred to as “pure information” models.  Modern financial innovation has resulted in objective realities that are far more complex than in the past, often beyond the capacity of the English language, accounting terminology, visual display, risk measurement, and other tools on which all depictions must primarily rely.  This Article illustrates this in part by focusing on the crafting of depictions of the risk–return characteristics of asset-backed securities (ABS), an important financial innovation whose informational problems helped cause the global financial crisis.  The Article shows that such characteristics can be so complex that even “objective reality” is subject to multiple meanings.  Given such rudimentary tools and such complex realities, the depictions may offer little more than shadowy, gross outlines of the objective reality, however that reality might be conceived.
          Financial innovation can sometimes pose a second, more fundamental roadblock to good depictions: even a well-intentioned intermediary either may not truly understand or may not function as if he understands the reality he is charged with depicting.  This second roadblock can flow both from complexities of financial innovation (what can be called “true misunderstanding”) and organizational complexities associated with the intermediary itself (what can be called “functional misunderstanding”).
          The Article shows that depictions of major banks involved in financial innovation activities can suffer from both roadblocks, thus helping explain the severity of the bank disclosure problems that also helped cause the financial crisis.  Such a bank’s activities may be too complex relative to existing depiction tools, and the activities and the organization of the bank itself may be so complex that the bank may suffer from both true misunderstandings and functional misunderstandings of the objective reality it is in.  An afterword (at Section IV(C)(3)) uses the just-unfolding derivatives problems involving JPMorgan Chase and its Chief Investment Office to illustrate both roadblocks.
          If complexities related to financial innovation are creating problems for the disclosure paradigm, technological innovation may contribute to a solution.  With advances in computer and Internet technologies, it is no longer essential to rely exclusively on intermediary depictions of reality.  The intermediary need not always stand between the investor and an objective reality, recounting to the investor what the intermediary sees.  Figuratively, if the intermediary step...

  • Party Rulemaking: Making Procedural Rules Through Party Choice
    • Authors: texaslrev_admin
      Abstract: Read Full Article (PDF) Article appears in Issue 6 Prof. Robert G. Bone Posted on June 1, 2012 90 Texas L. Rev. 1329             Procedural rules have different sources and are made in different ways.  Some boast a constitutional pedigree, while others are legislatively created.  Some, such as the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, are the product of a formal committee-based rulemaking process, while others are rooted in the common law or the rulemaking of local courts.  In this article, Professor Robert Bone explores yet another source of procedural rules: party rulemaking.  Party rulemaking involves parties choosing general procedural rules for their lawsuits by agreement.  Today, the latitude given to party rulemaking is quite limited in adjudication, even though it is very broad in arbitration.  For example, parties can contract for discovery rules in civil cases, but it is not clear that they can alter otherwise applicable pleading rules, joinder rules, summary judgment rules, and so on.  The scope of party rulemaking has been the subject of intense debate in recent years.  Some scholars favor an expansive approach, one that would turn many of the officially promulgated rules into defaults.  Others urge much stricter limits.  Yet arguments on both sides of the debate are incomplete and rather weak in important respects.  For example, they fail to appreciate the difficulty of evaluating costs and benefits in the highly strategic environment of litigation, and when they discuss the impact of party rulemaking on adjudicative legitimacy, they tend to rely on perceived legitimacy and ignore the importance of normative legitimacy.            In this article, Bone takes a close look at this debate.  He critically examines the conventional arguments for and against party rulemaking and evaluates the balance of costs and benefits from utilitarian and rights-based perspectives.  He concludes that the cost-benefit case against party rulemaking is unpersuasive except in certain cases, and he identifies three limited scenarios that justify judicial restraint in enforcing agreements.  He then turns to arguments from adjudicative legitimacy, those that claim that broad party rulemaking licenses illegitimate departures from the way civil adjudication should be conducted.   Arguments of this type require a theory of adjudication that is capable of identifying core elements essential to the institution’s legitimacy.  In the case of American civil adjudication, he argues, the core elements have to do with an institutional commitment to a distinctive mode of principled reasoning.   It follows that the most troubling examples of party rulemaking are those that tinker with procedures that frame, guide, or incentivize this reasoning process.  In the end, Bone concludes that while some important aspects of procedure should be off limits to party rulemaking, parties in general should have broader freedom to fashion their own procedural rules than they do today.
