To Ban, to Restrict, or to Leave Alone? Short Sales in 2020

- Advertisement -

Partner Content (SHoF) – Short selling in financial markets is controversial. It is variously blamed for causing excess volatility and harm to investors. At the height of the corona crisis, several countries banned short selling altogether. At the same time, activist short-sellers continue to unearth fraud among listed companies, including recently at Luckin Coffee. Should short selling be banned? Does it need to be restricted? Or should it be left alone?

Watch Magnus Dahlquist, Peter Wallenberg Professor of Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics, and Alexander Ljungqvist, Stefan Persson Family Professor of Entrepreneurial Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics and Convenor of the Stockholm Dialogue, present their views on short selling restrictions. They are joined by a panel of internationally acclaimed experts:

Scott Bauguess, director of the Center for Enterprise and Policy Analytics at the University of Texas and former acting chief economist at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

John C. Coffee, Adolf A. Berle Professor of Law and director of the Center on Corporate Governance at Columbia University Law School

Nandini Sukumar, CEO of the World Federation of Exchanges
