It seems so, based on the nature of the transition team, the stock market reaction to Trump’s election, what the Trump web site says they will do, and what they have the power to do.
Here is my recent piece on rethinking Dodd-Frank, which I think has been less than a success for the most part. Here were my original comments on Dodd-Frank, piece by piece, which I think were mostly on the mark. But overall Dodd-Frank ended up harming mortgage lending, and thus residential investment, more than I had been expecting. Here is my earlier post “Is the Fed our savior in financial regulation?” Overall, most of the gains from Dodd-Frank can be kept through adequate capital standards, and so there is a potential win from modifying the status quo. I would stress the simple point that most people who favor (or oppose) Dodd-Frank could not explain what the bill actually does, but they simply choose their positions based on how anti-finance they think they should be. That is a mistake.
I do plan to give you ongoing reports on economic policy changes as I see them developing.
