THIS WEEK’S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log on to the Las Vegas Business Press Web site and let us hear your opinion on this week’s question.
The Obama administration unveiled its plans for the biggest overhaul of the U.S. financial market in more than seven decades. The overhaul will undo many of the laws that have been adopted to deregulate the financial industry and would increase monitoring and regulation of the market system to prevent another financial meltdown like the one that led to the current recession. Among its highlights, Obama’s plan would create an agency to monitor consumer financial products like mortgages, make the Federal Reserve the overseer of major companies that are deemed too big to fail, and bring the largely unregulated hedge fund and private equity funds under federal scrutiny for the first time.
Do you think the Obama administration’s financial overhaul proposals go too far?
