The Tuesday Podcast: Writing The Rules

  • Listen to the Podcast

In the big finance bill passed last year, Congress left lots of details for the regulators to hammer out.

On today's Planet Money, we see what all that hammering looks like. We sit in on the bank regulators' book club (more on that here), and we visit a public hearing full of finance-industry people.

Also on the show: Why would a Burger King franchise in Arkansas be interested in derivatives regulation? Bloomberg News has the answer.

For more: Read our update on some of the key finance rules that regulators are working on.
