More honest discussion on the progress of bank regulation. Something has been bugging me: we hear there are 1500 lobbyists on the US capital hill every day working for the banks to sway politicians and their policy.

Campaign contributions? dining? dancing? golfing? what? a million a day is a lot of petty cash. No wonder ideas like “the greater good of the nation” get lost.
