On to Financial Reform!

With Health Care now out of the way, we can get to what I consider to be the more important issue: Reforming Wall Street and the banking sector . . . Essentially, I am advocating a “Do Over.” Reverse the past 3 decades of radical deregulation. The alternative is an even bigger financial crisis, and sooner than you imagine. The next time around, I plan on watching it all unfold from St. Barts.

–Barry Ritholtz, The Big Picture

My sentiments, exactly.

The only thing I would substitute in Ritholtz’s quote is “Palm Springs” for “St. Barts” (I prefer the desert — and U.S. soil!).

P.S.: stray tidbit — St. Bart’s was named after Christopher Columbus’ younger brother, Bartolomeo.
