Additions to Impact and Reaction Section[edit]

I am planning to add another subsection under the impact and reaction section of this article. I am planning to add a section discussing corporate governance issues affected by Dodd-Frank.

POV wording[edit]

I would suggest that wording such as "improvements" (where it is not the specific wording of a portion of the Act) is POV, and has no place in this article, particularly in section headers. One can say greater regulation, or increased regulation, or broader regulation without assigning the value improved, which is a disputed point. Gulbenk (talk) 21:05, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Can't see the forest for the trees[edit]

I wonder if someone who really understands D-F could add to the introduction a few sentences which would clearly summarize what this law does so a non-expert can get a mental handle on it. (PeacePeace (talk) 17:11, 6 February 2017 (UTC))

See introduction of the article: It made changes in the American financial regulatory environment that affect all federal financial regulatory agencies and almost every part of the nation's financial services industry. That sums it up pretty decently.
I don't really understand American Law, but I do know that legislation is subject to a lot of deals between the representatives. That's why several points in that law are covering things like "conflict resource monitoring", although such topics have practically no relations to banking regulation. This Act has not been composed by one or two clever men for one purpose, but by an entire parliament where everyone could take a turn to edit his own purposes in. Add the lobbyists, too. I'm pretty sure that this article is not the perfect explanation for the law, but it's definitely shorter and probably easier to understand. --Enyavar (talk) 14:48, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

What a mess of an article[edit]

I have no idea what it's supposed to mean. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 61.93.233.246 (talk) 02:30, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Like I said in the thread above: Blame the legislative system. This isn't a topic that everyone can understand. --Enyavar (talk) 14:48, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Trump's ideas[edit]

Am I misinformed about Trump planning to get rid of the D-F Act, or at least do a reform on it? So far, there is nothing about that debate in the article. --Enyavar (talk) 14:48, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

He has talked of removing the fiduciary responsibility for financial advisors, as well as other things I believe. Shaded0 (talk) 17:55, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
