Better Markets continues to update TRACERTM, a public resource that we launched last year to track and monitor all of the emergency actions taken by financial regulators in response to the coronavirus crisis.
TRACERTM is divided into four categories: Banking, Securities, Derivatives and Consumer Protection. For each regulatory action, the tracker gives the date, a brief summary of the action, a link to the action and the expiration date, if any, among other information.
TRACERTM is an invaluable tool for transparency, oversight and accountability. Once the crisis is over, the public will be able to use the TRACER to evaluate the regulators’ actions, determine if the stated purpose of the actions was achieved, and police the termination of the actions, particularly those that weaken or rollback key financial reform rules.
