ABSTRACT
The article presents an evaluation of short scale regulation during the 2007-2009 Great Recession. It discloses the effects of the recession on short scale policy, the recent argument on the Regulation SHO modifications by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and an overall issue of public view of risk and regulatory policy in detailed financial markets. The article concludes that the Regulation SHO revision by SEC, known as the short sale rule, is permitted by a 3-2 vote, although 4,300 people preferred new short sale limits.
