Faculty Insight: Too Small to Survive? Possible consequences of Dodd-Frank Act

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Darius Palia, a finance professor at Rutgers Business School, believes the sweeping reforms contained within the Dodd-Frank Act are proving to have a steep, unexpected price tag.

The two-year-old federal law, inspired by the collapse of the financial industry and the ensuing “Great Recession,” was intended to prevent another financial crisis by imposing new requirements for transparency, accountability and consumer protections.

Faculty Insight: Collapse of Lehman Brothers proves a bank's size isn't all that matters

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Darius Palia, a finance professor at Rutgers Business School, believes financial industry regulators have to be careful not to primarily look at the size of an institution when assessing the potential impact its failure would have on the industry. Based on the events that occurred after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, this is a limitation of rule-making and implementation under Dodd-Frank, according to Palia.

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

This paper examines evidence of lending discrimination in prime and subprime mortgage markets in New Jersey. Existing single-equation studies of race-based discrimination in mortgage lending assume race is uncorrelated with the disturbance term in the loan denial regression. At the individual loan-level, we show that race is correlated with both observable and unobservable risk variables, leading to biased coefficient estimates.

President’s plan a sigh of relief for small firms

Monday, December 14, 2009
Somerset, NJ

Overall, “the good thing about Obama’s plans is that they’re targeted,” said Darius Palia, a finance and economics professor at Rutgers Business School and the founding director of Rutgers Financial Institutions Center. “The problem is that he originally pledged to slash the national budget deficit by the end of his first term, and stimulus programs like these make that an unlikely prospect. I’d have liked to see more infrastructure and small-business focus in the first stimulus package

Thursday, October 1, 2009
Asbury Park, NJ

Professor of finance and economics Darius Palia is quoted in a story about the recent TD Bank computer glitch. Experts said computer glitches in bank mergers, while not uncommon, are the type of problem that can keep executives up at night. "I don't think it's a big risk in the scheme of things, but it depends how long this goes," said Palia. Most banks will have some problems. The question is, how long and how deep is it?"
