Different stock exchanges (for example, NYSE vs KRX) have similar but different regulations overall. Each exchange has different concerns and each exchange has a different approach to handle problems like volatility, etc.
How can I learn more about the thought process that goes into making policies/regulations to handle such problems?
Is there a specific discipline that studies financial exchanges and their regulations? Market Economics? I think that's too broad a term.
Bonus question: How do governments decide when to intervene on bad regulations/policies made by financial exchange marketplaces (? by this I mean: stock markets, foreign exchange markets, etc)
Maybe I don't have a clear question. In that case, can you provide some relevant introductory references or keywords to research?
If my question is not appropriate here, can you suggest where else I can get answers?

Rules established by government authority or customs with commercial authority are efforts to solve a particular social problem, procedures to solve those types of problems, and procedures to monitor behavior and enforce rules. Your research would be based on comparisons of these elements in unique case studies or contexts regardless of the information sources which should be available to the public.
