This week on our Masters in Business radio podcast, we discuss market regulation with former U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt, on the fifth anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Act. 

Levitt, the longest serving SEC chairman, remains one of the most insightful people on regulation and market structure. Some of his views on what works and what doesn't may surprise you. Along with weighing in on Dodd-Frank, Levitt discussed the Volcker rule, the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, broker fiduciary rules, how SEC commissioners are selected and more.

The full podcast is available on iTunesSoundCloud and Bloomberg. Earlier podcasts can be found on iTunes and at

Next week we speak with author Nick Murray.
