Also, a very interesting development today in the SEC taking civil action against Goldman Sachs over duplicitous investment vehicles, just after I watched that Frontline piece last night on Brooksley Born’s attempts as Director of the Commodities and Futures Trading Commission to get some regulation in place to monitor derivatives trading.  None other than Larry Summers was dispatched to build a campaign to silence her.  I now understand why it is that so many find it appalling that Summers is sitting in Obama’s circle of trust.  If nothing else, this lawsuit should open up the way for public support for financial regulation.
