    New US Drilling Ban

    AlanfromBig,

    Ever hear of Glass - Steagal? And who led the charge to repeal it? Clinton, Rubin, and Summers.

    <i>The Glass Steagel Act kept banks and securities firms apart. The simple logic was that neither banks nor securities firms have any direct interest in serving or protecting the public. That can only be achieved by regulation from government. Put them together and you have a recipe for disaster. Banks and securities firms have as their primary goal to make money. And if they get an idea to make a ton of it, no matter how stupid it is, (see Mortgage Meltdown), they will do it. Because in the end, the people who make these decisions do so in a bubble of their own — small wonder they create financial bubbles and crises. </i>
