The Volcker rule and its abolition

SEC: The Commission on securities and stock exchanges of the USA voted for the repeal of the ban on advertising by hedge funds

Last week, the SEC joined the regulators in the desire to revise the Volcker rule, what had long been dreaming of commercial banks.

On Tuesday, 5 Jun, The Commission on securities and stock exchanges of the USA became the fifth of the five agencies, after the fed, Commission on regulation of activities of commercial banks, Federal Corporation on insurance of contributions and the Commission on urgent exchange trade, in agreeing to possible amendments to the Volcker rule from 2013 year, prohibiting commercial banks to carry out transactions of sale and purchase in investments of people and organizations to retrieve their own profits.

The rule became part of the Dodd — Frank 2010 years and was introduced because of the rhetoric of former fed Chairman Paul Volcker about, increases in the speculative activity of commercial banks in financial instruments with high risk was a key catalyst of the financial crisis 2008 year.

In response to the possible consent of the SEC for reconsideration, major news agencies, like the New York Times and CNBC, called the changes "extensive", while a U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren reacted even more sharply. Referring to the many former investment bankers Goldman Sachs, which was or is part of an administration trump, including the current Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin, Warren called it a "patronage" by "former friends" who are willing to repeal the rule, which protects taxpayers from another crisis.
