Dodd–Frank Act implementation: well into it and no further ahead


  • Wayne A. Abernathy


A parlor game that we have inflicted on our family and friends involves one person reading the first line of a book while the others try to guess the title and author. For example, here is one that some of you would get right away, although it might cause others of you to struggle: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Of course, that is from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Those of you who guessed that one right away may be feeling very smug.
