The Insidious Remnants of State Rules Respecting Capital Formation

Publication Title

Washington University Law Quarterly


The purpose of this Article is to argue that Congress, notwithstanding the significant problems illuminated by public choice theory and interest group analysis, should complete the work it started with the National Securities Markets Improvement Act of 1996 by entirely preempting state control over capital formation. Only in this manner is it possible to reach the goal of a modern, fair, and efficient regulatory scheme for capital formation.
