Click to edit Master subtitle style Regulations Regulations are aimed at protecting the investors and creating an environment for organizations to conduct their affairs in the utmost ethical, legal, and competent manner. Regulations are typically enacted in response to specific crises and concerns or protection needed due to the failure of market based correction mechanisms. Adequate regulation creates a balance between reducing the likelihood of recurrence of the crisis and the imposed enforcement and compliance costs. Underregulation is when adequate rules are not in place to ensure long-term improvements and stability. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/business/july-dec09/keynes_12-16.html ,VIdeo http://www.thedailyshow.com/full-episodes/tue-march-16-2010-jude-law ,VIDEO

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
