Dodd-Frank Rules: Almost Over or Only Beginning?
by Alexandra R. Lajoux | September 26, 2012
The November elections will have a tremendous impact on the future of the Dodd-Frank Act's pending and implemented measures. In his State of the Union address this year, President Obama characterized Dodd-Frank as entrepreneurial and family-friendly. By contrast, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney called the law a “behemoth that’s going to be followed by thousands and thousands of pages of new regulations.” Members of the 112th Congress are using similar rhetoric this fall on the job and on the campaign trail.
