Ricks on Short-Term Funding Markets

Reforming the Short-Term Funding Markets, by Morgan Ricks, Harvard University Law School, was recently posted on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

Traditionally, governments have established licensing requirements for the issuance of important classes of monetary instruments — namely, deposit obligations and bank notes. Their issuance has been a legal privilege. This article proposes a similar legal regime for other short-term IOUs, which present similar problems. The approach would be functional rather than formalistic. The article sketches a prototype of such a regulatory system. In addition, the article offers a critical analysis of current reform initiatives pertaining to the short-term funding markets. It finds reasons to doubt that they will be effective. It proposes an alternative, coordinated regulatory approach that could be implemented under current U.S. law.
