Who is to make wise those who are required to have wisdom?

The Federal Reserve Board, under fire from Congress for lax enforcement during the biggest mortgage boom in American history, will hold a public hearing on how it might use its authority to prevent abuses in the mortgage market.  See Bloomberg story http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=email_en&refer=economy&sid=az0YslU2CiQU

Bottom line:  few people see the need for caution and restraint until after wild excess has brought great pain on the nation.  Yet again.  There will be more fall out from this free-flowing money era.  The waves of lawsuits and finger-pointing are just getting underway.
