EU Financial Services Policy since 2007: Crisis, Responses, and Prospects

Nicolas Veron

No WP18-6, Working Paper Series from Peterson Institute for International Economics

Abstract: This paper presents a holistic description and assessment of the European Union’s financial services policy since the start of financial crisis in mid-2007. The decade-long sequence is divided into four themes, in broadly chronological order: the initial reaction to the 2007-08 financial shock; subsequent initiatives framed by political developments at the EU and G-20 levels; the banking union from mid-2012; and more recent events centered on the UK vote to exit the European Union (Brexit). The analysis identifies banking union as the watershed moment, and correspondingly assesses the EU policy response as mostly inadequate in the first half and mostly effective in the second half of the period covered. Recommendations for future reforms are made in the conclusion.
