Roundup: Financial Reform & Financial Tips
Posted By Jim On 05/22/2010 @ 9:17 am In Personal Finance | 6 Comments
The big financial news of this week, besides the correction in the markets, has to be the Senate passing  the financial reform bill – Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010 (S. 3217) . As they work to reconcile this bill with the one passed by the House in December, we’ll discuss some of the more significant amendments that affect us directly. There are a lot of new banking regulations, new regulatory bodies, and the like but we’ll start taking a look at things that affect people directly (banking regulations affect us indirectly).
Finally, Flexo asks whether we should discourage some students from attending college . It’s an interesting question and after watching the Frontline story about for-profit education, I’ve been wondering that myself.
