  1. Yup. It’s not the quantity of Regulation that is the problem, it’s the spine to actually ENFORCE the rules-specifically to enforce them evenly, and without prejudice. “Too Big to Fail” should’ve been a warning that it was “Too big to succeed”.

  2. Hi, bESt …yes, that’s the link in the story. Cannonshop, that’s only partly true re the financial sector — we need Glass Steagall to be reinstated.

  3. I wrote that!!October 26th on FB and I posted it on several Occupy FB pages!!!
