    All the bad things in our economy are the result of laws and policies that permitted unregulated financial dealings . And of all the things that were changed to permit the disasters and crashes nothing has been done to reverse them. Even the laws like Dodd Frank are being ignored . Why is that? Or is it an embarrassment that shouldn't be brought up?
