    Can we really afford any more of these debacles?
    A quick look at the history of the gilded age and the "panics" of the late 1800's/early 1900's makes it pretty clear what we're in for, unless we re-establish the rules that gave us economic stability at the end of the Great Depression.

      I get what Tiabbi's saying and I can't disagree with the principal involved but had Obama and Holder made this a priority over other overriding problems, would we already be in a horrific crash, probably the worst economic collapse of humanity?  I don't know the answer to that.  I'd hope the people at the top have a bit more insight into the repercussions than Tiabbi does.  Yeah, let's reestablish the rules but it may take some time and large Democratic majorities in Congress.
