Open source project
This is an open source project to collect and organize information related to financial markets regulation.
It is intended as information source for market participants, the legislative and regulatory communities, academics, the media and the general public.
To hear a radio interview about Riski go here to Federal News Radio.
If you are knowledgeable about topics related to financial markets regulation we encourage you to register and add and/or edit the content here. We are working collectively to help bring transparency and many points of view to this process.
Financial markets reform is fundamental for our nation. We are suffering from an economic crisis created in part by financial market excesses and unregulated markets.
Please see "the list of topics that need to be imported." If you know how and would like to help please choose a topic and import it from Wikipedia to a new page here on Riski.
We have created a standardized page format for this project.
Please see "the recommended format here".
