Comments on: Congress approves Basel III before it even exists http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/07/15/congress-approves-basel-iii-before-it-even-exists/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: DJT85 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/07/15/congress-approves-basel-iii-before-it-even-exists/comment-page-1/#comment-16824 Fri, 16 Jul 2010 13:48:42 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=4741#comment-16824 I think there’s an implicit assumption in Barr’s comments – namely that Basel III will meet the minimum standards (i.e., the Collins amendment) and comply with the other prescriptions (i.e., countercyclical capital charges for systemically risky activities) in the bill.

Should Basel come in weaker than expected, it seems that US regulators would indeed have to reconcile with Dodd-Frank…

That would be unfortunate because she has been the only person in Washington over the past two years who has consistently been on the side of people who make less than $500k a year with less than a $1M in assets.

Besides, TurboTax Timmy is jealous of the fact that knows how to read memos on tax matters with the ability to actually understand and remember the contents.
