Knowledge Capture in Financial Regulation
Data-, Information- and Knowledge-Asymmetries in the US Financial Crisis
Eva Becker assesses the US financial crisis as a crisis of regulatory
data, information and knowledge. Based on the Financial Crisis Inquiry
Commission’s interviews as well her own interviews, and drawing on
Capture Theory and recent reformulations thereof, she develops
“knowledge capture” as a theoretic framework to assess financial
regulation under conditions of 21st century complexity.
Eva Becker holds a degree in communication management, philosophy and
comparative literature (BA at University of Leipzig, Germany) and public
management and governance (MA at Zeppelin University, Germany). From
2012 to 2014, she worked as a research associate on Helmut Willke’s
research project “policy responses to systemic risk”, funded by the
German Research Foundation (DFG).
