Nice Try but not enough. What happens when another Bushy The Bungler gets into the Whitehouse & fires all the regulators or installs crony bosses who dismantle the whole thing? Who picked 5% retained risk on SOME paper? More like 10% at least on ALL paper. These jerks still won't have enough skin in the game. Whopee, investors get a few days to look over some cooked up prospectus. Wall St now has lying with statistics honed to a fine art. The whole thing smells like the banker's lawyers wrote it. At least the raters (like Standard & Poors)are out of the picture. Permalink
