This paper focuses on the evolution of global banking regulations set by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision known as the Basel Accords. We argue that argue that both Basel I and Basel II have failed and we expect the same from Basel III. We believe Basel III will fail because of: i) path dependency on two previous failed accords, ii) delayed implementation, iii) strong pressure from bank-supported lobbyists and finally iv) strong influence of politicians. Rather than proposing new banking regulatory initiatives, we recommend imposing higher personal responsibility for bank managers, regulators and supervisors. As a result, Basel III will not prevent future crises from affecting the global banking industry.
