COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Aside from substantive matter aboutt whether Dodd-Franks/Basel 4 is right or not, nothing wrong with govt deciding this.

Then a lower level issue about whether to delegate negotiating duties in multilateral FS framework to central bank or not.

FS involves trading off LT stability/variance, against st growth, and that choice rightly rests with the legislature, not the cb.

One of the reasons I was concerned about @neelkashkari 's early splashes about too big to fail exceeding Fed mandate to execute/deliver.
