This WSJ article begins:
Last summer, Congressman Barney Frank and then-Senator Chris Dodd stayed up all night writing new rules for America’s multitrillion-dollar derivatives markets.
That’s obviously not true.
As I’ve been working on various aspects of this piece of legislation, I’ve been trying to figure out who actually was staying up all night writing the rules.
I’m pretty sure I know who wrote certain portions of the bill – though I can’t be sure (which is pretty crazy if you think on it) – and the answers would, in some cases, be surprising.
