U.S. should accept
worldwide regulatory agency
I disagree with your editorial Thursday that our country should not accept a worldwide regulatory agency to oversee financial markets [“President Obama vs. the G20,” Opinion, editorial, April 2].
We have created havoc around the world with our reckless behavior and anything less than a regulatory agency will be a paper tiger.
Frankly, I’m weary of a country with endless battles between its political parties, which lead to either no legislation, bad compromises or good legislation that can be reversed at a later time.
It’s a game of chance and that’s hardly the way for a modern country to survive. I would like to see our country governed by a body that seeks to do the best for all the people all the time. At least we wouldn’t wind up periodically in catastrophic straits, compromising our future.
