Helmut Siekmann on the role of rating agencies ("Bayern 2")

Prof. Helmut Siekmann describes the role of rating agencies in Europe and the United States in a new edition of the Bayern 2 radio program "Radio Wissen". In this context, Siekmann also explains how their role changed after the financial crisis.

"In the Dodd-Frank Act, all references to ratings of rating agencies were crossed out. This already happened in 2010", Siekmann explained. However, new, alternative methods are still under development.
