In a statement marking the four-year anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Act, Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew called the measure "the most comprehensive set of reforms to our financial system since the Great Depression." He said the government's response to the financial crisis was "forceful." The government not only "worked to repair the damage, we also pursued Wall Street Reform to lay the groundwork for a safer financial system and to curtail the behavior and practices that put our financial system and economy at risk." Lew added.
