Description:Ã‚Â Far-reaching legislation aimed at overhauling the nation’s financial-services regulatory system is moving forward in Congress, but advocates say some of the proposed consumer protections are too weak.
Questions for discussion:
- Do you believe consumers need a high level of legislation to protect them from the financial services industry?
- What sorts of problems do you attribute to poor consumer protection laws?
- Why do you think some people might feel differently about consumer protection legislation for financial services in comparison to other services and products in the marketplace?
