Pollin speculates on financial reform legislation

Robert Pollin

Robert Pollin, economics and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute, writes a column about what the key issues are likely to be as negotiators from the U.S. House and Senate work to reconcile the two chambers’ versions of financial reform legislation. Pollin says much effort will be spent coming up with a new way to regulate derivatives and other financial instruments used to speculate on oil and food prices. (Huffington Post, 6/7/10)
