Abbreviation for the Dodd-Frank Act.

In full, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.

The main aims of Dodd-Frank are to:

  1. Promote the financial stability of the United States by improving accountability and transparency in the financial system;
  2. End "too big to fail";
  3. Protect US taxpayers by ending bailouts; and
  4. Protect consumers from abusive financial services practices.

... Republicans including President Trump believe Dodd-Frank, which has not been fully enacted, is unduly burdensome on banks and businesses, and restricts lending.
