The Shortest Column Ever on Wall Street Regulation

posted at 8:05 pm on April 16, 2010 by

I believe in regulation of the banking industry. If you screw up, we don’t bail you out. Then you go bankrupt. Next, smaller more efficient entities suck up the customers who still need your services. Congratulations… you’ve been regulated.

There, ladies and gentlemen, is the shortest piece of legislation ever seen in Congress. Now who can we get to introduce and vote for it?

Well, I believe in somewhat more regulation… customers have the right to know what you’re doing with our money.

Otherwise as above.

Can you somehow pump that up with 2699 pages of pork, so we can possibly get Congress interested in it?

Let me guess, Jazz. You’re not expecting a Christmas card from Soros this year.

And the Americans who suffer with the failure, that is part of the control mechanism too, right?
That is the way I want the medical industry to be regulated, wives and children start dieing, men take their business elsewhere.
