An Alternative to the Dodd-Frank Resolution Approach
Making Failure Feasible Reviewed by Vern McKinley

Six years after the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, the argument over what would have been the most appropriate legislative response to the massive bailouts in 2008 and 2009 continues. Making Failure Feasible is a deep dive into the complex legal and policy issues involved in ending a storied 40-year history of the U.S. authorities propping up troubled financial behemoths.

Vern McKinley is a Research Fellow at The Independent Institute and author of Financing Failure: A Century of Bailouts from The Independent Institute.
