Another reason why the US needs a more technocratic body to draw up policy proposals.  Clearly Mr Frank has not thought this one all the way through.  I know the European Commission is by no means perfect, and certainly is not immune to unwise policy formation.  However, Frank’s call to ban US market entry to i-banks operating within areas of different regulation gives credence to the idea that individual policy prescriptions in a complex world like finance are not ideal.  In this case, they are crazy.
