Seattle Times letters to the editor

April 5, 2009 at 4:21 PM

Obama and the G20

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.

— Erin Scarlett, Seattle
