Dodd-Frank, Non-Compete 'Afterthoughts,' Religion and Welfare

Spring Symposium presented by the University of St. Thomas School of Law Journal of Law & Public Policy

A number of arguments have been made that there are excessive government regulations on businesses and the financial sector which are choking the economy, while others argue that we lack sufficient regulations to protect individuals and counter corporate greed.

Most would agree that some level of regulation is appropriate and necessary, what is the proper balance, and how is this determined? When is it ok for employers to be able to request non-compete agreements once employees are already working for the company? Did Dodd-Frank resolve concerns to protect consumers? How has Dodd-Frank changed the way banks do business in the free market, and still be able to be profitable while complying with government regulations, and avoiding arbitration? Is significant regulation of businesses compatible with religious freedom?
