The legal, policy and economic issues associated with pension provision, lifetime financial sustainability, and care and dignity in old age and their implications for home life are fundamental challenges for the future of our society. Pension provision is in crisis and this chapter highlights the crucial policy choices and regulatory challenges. It considers the importance of the ‘nuclear family’ and the ‘extended family’ in the provision of care, from child care to old-age care. The home, supported by the wider society, is the natural environment in which such provision is best anchored. An adequate legal and regulatory framework for pensions needs to balance a number of competing interests, bearing in mind the implications in terms of intergenerational debt of the financing of care and income in old age, and the broader social-justice considerations in the design of pension schemes that safeguard dignity in old age in a market economy.

Central banks occupy a unique space in their national governments and in the global economy. The study of central banking however, has too often been dominated by an abstract theoretical approach that fails to grasp central banks’ institutional nuances. This comprehensive and insightful Handbook, takes a wider angle on central banks and central banking, focusing on the institutions of central banking. By 'institutions', Peter Conti-Brown and Rosa Lastra refer to the laws, traditions, norms, and rules used to structure central bank organisations. The Research Handbook on Central Banking’s institutional approach is one of the most interdisciplinary efforts to consider its topic, and includes chapters from leading and rising central bankers, economists, lawyers, legal scholars, political scientists, historians, and others.

This chapter analyses the ethical foundations of financial law focusing on legal and philosophical considerations. After the Great Financial Crisis one of the relevant issues that has emerged in the design of financial regulation is the question of the telos or end of financial law. Drawing on the Aristotelian tradition and the notion of the common good, we identify the principles of justice, prudence (underlying both macro and micro supervision) and integrity (underlying conduct of business regulation) as key foundations of the new regulatory framework, one in which the interests of bankers and financial market participants (in particular, those in senior management) are realigned with the interests of society.

The global financial crisis evidenced the corrosive effects of unethical behaviour upon the banking industry. The recurrence of misbehaviour in the financial sector, including fraud and manipulations of market indices, suggests the need to establish a banking culture that conforms to the highest standards of ethical and professional behaviour. This Research Handbook on Law and Ethics in Banking and Finance focuses on the role that law should play and the effectiveness of newly introduced regulations and supervisory actions as a driver for ethical conduct so as to reconnect the interests of bankers and financiers with the interests of society.
