Listen graduates, “plastics” is long passé… now it is “bank regulations”

Sir reading Christopher Caldwell’s “The Volcker rule is a gift to banks and excludes the rest” December 14, it is easy to see whey instead of recommending “plastics” as a future to a graduate, any person with good intentions would now easily tell him “bank regulations”.

And if we already gasp at the 828 pages of the Dodd-Frank Act, we should not forget that this is without making one single reference to the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision, and to the Basel Accord to which the US is a signatory.

If this regulatory frenzy is not digging us deeper in the hole we’re in, I do not know what is.
