Think Tank: FinReg edition
Since the blog -- and Washington -- is shifting focus from health-care reform to financial-regulation reform, this week's Think Tank is something of a primer. As it happens, all the links are to reports put out by the Roosevelt Institute, because it has been publishing the best introductory articles by far. For anyone who has the time and the inclination to really get up to speed, download the whole of the 'Make Markets Be Markets' report (pdf). For those who want selections, here are my favorites:
1) Mike Konczal writes up Financial Reform 101. Anyone who doesn't feel up to speed on FinReg should start here.
2) Richard Scott Carnell explains that "in banking, the debacle was above all a regulatory failure."
3) Elizabeth Warren makes the case for a Consumer Financial Protection Agency.
4) Raj Date argues that it's time to get ride of Fannie and Freddie.
5) Rob Johnson lays out what it will take to end the 'Too Big to Fail' threat.
