Will Wall Street reforms work?
The US Senate has approved a bill which will see the most sweeping overhaul of the country's financial regulations since the 1930's. Will the measures work?
The bill creates a new watchdog agency and will seek to reform the complicated derivatives market. It will also increase restraints on larger banks and require proof from borrowers that they can pay back even the most basic of mortgages.
President Obama said the reforms mean that Americans would never again pay "for Wall Street's mistakes".
Will the proposals stabilise the US economy? Is it possible to fully regulate the activities of the financial markets? Do you work in the financial services industry?
