Fixing Wall Street

They Talk Tough — but Can Bernie or Hillary Actually Take on Wall Street and Win?:

A lot of pundits and professional economists have been weighing in on the financial reform plans of candidates like Sanders and Clinton. Paul Krugman, for example, has strongly stated his preference for Clinton’s proposals to reform Wall Street. You’ve noted the problem of lack of detail in the plans you’ve seen. As an economist, does that make it difficult for you to access their merits?

EK: It does. These proposals lack the specificity to allow me, acting only as a professional economist, to draw many conclusions.


In other words, the usual smoke and mirrors from BOTH candidates.
