Title: The domestic political origins of global financial standards : Agrarian influence and the creation of U.S. securities regulations
Author: Richard W. Carney
Copyright year: 2010
Abstract: What are the political origins of America’s securities regulations? In contrast to arguments that point to business owners as determining the institutional foundations of America’s political economy, this paper argues that farmers play a leading role. Indeed, the rules and regulations governing U.S. securities markets were created in opposition to the wishes of business owners, and without farmers’ political influence, the United States may have developed a variant of the coordinated market economy found in continental Europe. Moreover, to the extent that U.S. securities regulations serve as a template for international financial standards, the paper will show that the humble American farmer has inadvertently contributed to the financialization of the modern global economy.
