The Wall Street Journal, A Smarter Approach to New York’s Banks

By Wendy Long, August 14, 2012
Since the financial crisis began in 2008, four proposals for financial-industry reform have emerged. Only one will work, and it’s not the one imposed by the 2010 Dodd-Frank law. Let’s review the options.
