The purpose of this article, however, is not to summarize the maze of federal and state banking regulation. Instead, recognizing that deposit insurance is a centerpiece of the overall regulatory scheme to which any financial institution in the United States is subject, this article is primarily concerned with subjecting this form of bank regulation to analysis based upon general principles of regulatory theory. This article is less concerned with the details of banking law than it is with using regulatory to shape policy guidelines for the coming process of deposit insurance reform.
