Abstract: Abstract The debate on regulation typically revolves around the quantity of regulation and the choice between regulation and deregulation. While the global financial crisis has taught us that regulation is necessary, this does not mean that regulation cannot be counterproductive. Good regulation is any regulation that reduces the extent of fraud and corruption in the financial sector without imposing excessively high costs on the society. Several examples of good regulation and bad regulation are discussed.
