10 Steps to Stable Financial Markets
Much has been written and spoken about the lessons learned from the financial crisis of 2009. In this book, we list the lessons not learned before the financial crisis. The purpose of this book is to demonstrate that the theoretical and intellectual frameworks for regulating financial systems that had been available since at least 2001 could have prevented the systemic failure in the United States that led to the collapse of global credit markets in 2008.
Wall Street's Failure to Deliver
Rigged financial markets and hopeless under-regulation on Wall Street are not new problems. In this book, Susanne Trimbath gives a sobering account of naked short selling, the failure to settle, and her efforts over decades, trying to get this fixed. Twenty-five years ago, Trimbath was working “backstage at Wall Street” when a group of corporate trust specialists told her about a problem in shareholder voting rights. When she went to senior management at Depository Trust Company (DTC), then and still the largest securities depository in the world, they brushed it off saying, “You can’t balance the world.” Ten years later, a lawyer from Texas would tell her that the same problem was about to blow up the financial markets: Wall Street brokers are using short sales and fails to deliver to grab the assets of American entrepreneurs. This is a cautionary tale. What started as a regulatory failure turned into a regulatory crisis. Shareholder democracy is in shambles. The institutions that were established to correct a problem of trade settlement failures have instead exacerbated the problem. Global financial markets may not survive what comes next.

DAC6, TIEAs, MDR, CRS, and FATCA
The sixth amendment to the Directive on Administrative Cooperation in the field of taxation (DAC6) and mandatory disclosure regimes (MDRs) in many jurisdictions have led to a large number of professionals potentially being required to disclose information in relation to their clients’ arrangements. The authors analyse the operation of the various automatic exchange of information regimes introduced in the last five years, including the OECD common reporting standards, DAC6 and MDRs, setting them in their historical context. They focus on the guidance offered by the Irish and UK tax authorities with reference to other guidance in Europe and beyond, where appropriate.
