Len Seabrooke publishes forum piece on financial reform in Socio-Economic Review
In the forum contribution he argues that: “Countries that are increasing their regulatory capacity should be allowed to voice open questions and doubts behind closed doors. Exposing them to scrutiny
through reports for a public and market audience may do more harm than good and, in extreme cases, provide an illegitimate form of international sanctioning. Creating and improving the conditions for learning is crucial if we are to enhance our understanding of how finance works and how to regulate it at the national, regional and international levels”
