Summary/Abstract "The turmoil in financial markets that resulted from the 2007 subprime mortgage crisis in the United States indicates the need to dramatically transform regulation and supervision of financial institutions. Would these institutions have been sounder in the 2004 Revised Framework on International Convergence of Capital Measurement and Capital Standards (Basel II accord) - negotiated between 1999 and 2004 - had already been fully implemented? Basel II represents a dramatic change in capital regulation of large banks in the countries represented on the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. This study evaluates Basel II as a bank regulatory paradigm and as an international arrangement, considers some possible alternatives, and recommends significant changes in the arrangement."--BOOK JACKET
