November 14, 2013

Roosevelt Institute Fellow Mike Konczal explains the problems with implementing Dod Frank, distinct approaches to financial reform, why the last useful financial innovation was the ATM machine, Where President Obama’s financial reform record has been successful, where regulators have failed, how interconnected regulations are, why Wall Street complexity is a problem for most Americans and urgent is the threat of another systemic financial collapse?

On The Better Half: President Obama explains new tweaks to the ACA, white supremacist finds out he has African ancestry on live television, Rush Limbaugh says more disgusting things about single women, a moving statement from the Philippines climate change representative and a disgusting commentary from Fox News hack and your calls and IMs.
