Listen — Yaron Brook: ‘regulation is what caused the financial crisis’

In this podcast, Yaron Brooks discusses the pros and cons of regulating the financial market. “In 2007, before the financial crisis started … finance, banking, Wall Street were the most regulated industries in America. Every aspect of finance was regulated. Everything they did, they needed to get permission. So when the financial crisis happened, how can you blame it on the lack of regulation?” asked Yaron. “I argue the exact opposite. I argue that in a fundamental sense it was too much regulation. Indeed, regulation is what caused the financial crisis.”
