    TREASURY DEPT. PROPOSES NEW POWERS FOR FED

    Treasury’s Plan Would Give Fed Wide New Power
    By EDMUND L. ANDREWS

    WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department will propose on Monday that Congress give the Federal Reserve broad new authority to oversee financial market stability, in effect allowing it to send SWAT teams into any corner of the industry or any institution that might pose a risk to the overall system.

    The proposal is part of a sweeping blueprint to overhaul the nation’s hodgepodge of financial regulatory agencies, which many experts say failed to recognize rampant excesses in mortgage lending until after they set off what is now the worst financial calamity in decades.

    Democratic lawmakers are all but certain to say the proposal does not go far enough in restricting the kinds of practices that caused the financial crisis. Many of the proposals, like those that would consolidate regulatory agencies, have nothing to do with the turmoil in financial markets. And some of the proposals could actually reduce regulation.

    According to a summary provided by the administration, the plan would consolidate what is now an alphabet soup of banking and securities regulators into a powerful trio of overseers responsible for everything from banks and brokerage firms to hedge funds and private equity firms.

    While the plan could expose Wall Street investment banks and hedge funds to greater scrutiny, it carefully avoids a call for tighter regulation.

    My late husband used to have some old military sayings. USN Destroyer - Vietnam tour and ALL around the world tours. Later on with the Air NG fighter wing along with his NON goobmint job.

    SNAFU was one of them.

    I can't say some of the other things here.

    If you read some of Claire Wolfe's famous QUOTES... she talks about one... America is at that awkward stage...

    "Is this allowed?"

    Allowed by whom? The people who have the power to allow whatever they want? Obviously so.

    What does this have to do with guns?

    I am not sure how this applies to the focus of this forum? Any moderators want to check this out? It does not seem pertinent to me. :confused:

    What the freak is going on with this place?

    This has nothing to do with guns. Not even with slingshots.
