The Importance of Elizabeth Warren

The good people of Massachussetts have gone a long way to make-up for their egregious electing of Mitt Romney to be their governor some years ago by sending Elizabeth Warren to the United States Senate.  Simon Johnson of MIT Sloan School of Management, gives her a rousing send off:

We need a new approach to regulation more generally – and not just for banking. We should aim to simplify and to make matters more transparent, exactly along Senator Warren’s general lines.

We should confront excessive market power, irrespective of the form that it takes.

We need a new trust-busting moment. And this requires elected officials willing and able to stand up to concentrated and powerful corporate interests. Empower the consumer – and figure out how this can get you elected.

Agree with the people of Massachusetts, and give Elizabeth Warren every opportunity.

Read all.  Very interesting
