Rather than regulating themselves, "Investment Banking Inc" has decided to pull out all the stops and have their colleagues who run the US Government regulate their clients!

This is embarrassing, on many levels. The clients are going to have to the underwrite the new rules of illiquidity and volatility that the government and bulge bracket investment banks are creating.
