讲座摘要:
  随着资本市场不断变化,顺应创新是监管活动发展的一种常态。近年,变化正在加速:市场不断涌现融资的新工具(非同质化代币等数字加密资产),证券交易的新方式(Robinhood等网络经纪商,以及智能投顾)和新理念(GameStop等网红股)。传统证券活动得到新技术加持只是观察这些现象的简单维度;更为深刻的是,这些现象提出了监管需要面对的新问题。本次讲座包含两讲:第一讲介绍美国证券法规范资本市场和市场参与者的基本思路;在此基础上,第二讲将讨论现行监管框架是否足以回应资本市场新变化带来的潜在问题。
 
The capital markets are constantly changing and so, unsurprisingly, regulation tends to follow innovation in the marketplace. However, that change has been accelerating. More recently, we have seen the growth of new instruments to raise capital (e.g., crypto-assets, including NFTs), new ways for investors to buy and sell securities (e.g., online brokers, like Robinhood, and robo-advisors), and new approaches to trading securities (e.g., meme stocks, like GameStop). At some level, these simply involve the use of new technologies to support traditional activities. But, in many ways, they also raise new issues that regulators must begin to grapple with. In the first lecture, we will set the foundation to understand the basic approach taken by the U.S. securities laws in regulating the capital markets and market participants. Drawing on the first lecture, in the second, we will assess the extent to which existing regulation is or isn’t sufficient to address potential problems raised by recent changes in the capital markets.
