How Much Would Better Disclosure Help?
...the difference is
between good regulation and bad regulation.
...good regulation is
that which enhances knowledge and competition,
both of which make markets function better. ..
...bad regulation is
that which restrains competition and stifles innovation. ..
...firms must be able to fail

...less government interference
also helps to prevent single firm or industry dominance. ..

Complex financial products should be more costly to sell...
Of course, information and understanding aren't the same thing...
