Course Description

This course will deal with the growing impact of electronic banking and other technological innovations on Canadian financial institutions and the Canadian payments' system, including electronic funds transfers and large value transfer systems at both the national and international level. It examines the extent to which technology is resulting in the redundancy of traditional methods of regulating financial institutions and the failure of legislation to keep pace with the changing electronic world. The impact on competition within the financial services industry resulting from these changes and the extent to which regulation and competition are incompatible will also be examined.
