Abstract

The Dodd-Frank Act is single longest bill ever passed by the U.S… The Dodd-Frank Act passed in reply to the latest financial meltdown, which applies to prevent further fraud and abuse in the markets, also geared toward protecting consumers with regulations like keeping borrowers from abusive lending conditions and mortgage practices by lenders. Dodd-Frank regulatory requirements set too many restrictions on local lenders and appraisers and that the Act created for large banks "too-big-to-fail”. However, the small banks, which do not fit neatly into standardized financial modeling, will face unintended consequences, as increased operations costs, which lead to reduced income and limited potential growth. The Act created enormous difficulties on small banks, which has little to do with the financial crisis.
