Do not rely on Regulation!

Regulators are beholden to to politicians who in turn are beholden to the industries they are supposed to regulate. Banking regulations were loosened substantially in the United States towards the end of the last decade. The current crisis of confidence is to a large extent due to wrong policies pursued by regulators and the Federal Reserve Bank. The situation in the Eurozone and the UK is not much better.
