Clearing the air

At long last, the nationwide ban on smoking in public conveyances and enclosed places has become official. This came after President Rodrigo R. Duterte issued Executive Order No. 26 (EO 26) last month.

EO 26 invoked Republic Act (RA) Nos. 8749 and 9211 or the Philippine Clean Air Act of 1999 and the Tobacco Regulation Act of 2003, respectively, which were passed by Congress and signed into law by then Presidents Joseph E. Estrada and Gloria M. Arroyo. On a national level, it replicated an existing ordinance in Davao City promulgated in 2002 when Mr. Duterte was still the mayor of Mindanao’s premier metropolis.

The regulatory regime and market valuation of US banks

The Trump administration has initiated a review of the banking regulations in the US through an Executive Order with a view to “liberalizing” it from the stringent capital and prudential requirements imposed by the policy reforms established after the Global Financial Crisis(GFC). These reforms are encapsulated in the Dodd – Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.  The professed objective of this policy direction is to enable the banking institutions to make more credit available to the US economy and to make them more competitive with their competitors from other countries.  However, it is important to appreciate the reasons for the reforms contained in the Dodd-Frank Act before these are reformed again.
