Riski, also called freerisk, is a open source project to draw together many resources which relate to the regulation of financial markets by the 111th and 112th Congress of the United States as a result of the worst "global financial crisis" in 80 years.
"Fair, stable and transparent financial markets and system are cornerstones for democracy. The credit crisis of 2007-2009 has highlighted the need to reform the regulation of our financial system to reduce systemic risk and more effectively protect investors. The authority and reach of our financial regulators is being revamped. And our nation's relation to politically empowered global agencies is being revised.
We recognize that various parties have points of view which may conflict and believe that exposing information to "sunlight" and public exposure will help bring common interests to the surface."
Confidence and trust in the financial system, by the people, can be developed by opening the lawmaking process to input and scrutiny.
Riski was developed as an open platform for legislators, market participants, financial technology experts, regulators, lobbyists, academics and the media to contribute to a body of knowledge about these important topics.
