Zbyt duży optymizm Obamy ws regulacji

Wczorajsze przemówienie prezydenta Baracka Obamy na Wall Street rozczarowało ekonomistów zajmujących się regulacjami bankowymi. Prof. Johnson wylicza zapowiedzi prezydenta USA kwaśno je komentując:

First, we’re proposing new rules to protect consumers and a new Consumer Financial Protection Agency to enforce those rules.”  This is a very good thing, and of course the banks are adamantly opposed.  But this Agency will not by itself bring us financial stability; that requires change at the level of how banks and other financial institutions are operated.

Second, he talked about “gaps in regulation”; this is international finance bureaucrat code for mush (doesn’t the President know this?).  The specific potentially interesting pieces he put under this heading were run together in this paragraph”
