Does One Size Fit All? A Policy Discussion on Insurance, Regulation & the American Economy

In the wake of the global economic crisis, the financial sector is coming under increased scrutiny and international regulators are seeking to reform how insurers are supervised. But have overseas regulators become too powerful?

Join The Hill on Tuesday, July 28 to consider the potential effects of international standard setting on the United States’ current state-based regulatory structure. In an increasingly interconnected world, what types of regulatory oversight might best serve consumers, the U.S. insurance market, and the economy? Policymakers and industry experts will discuss how the unique nature of the insurance industry affects its regulation and what policies Congress might consider, including amendments to Dodd-Frank, to protect U.S. policyholders and promote competition.
