This Is The Government: Your Legal Right To Redeem Your Money Market Account Has Been Denied Your elected officials are working in your best interests, trust them.

Yet new regulations proposed by the administration, and specifically by the ever-incompetent Securities and Exchange Commission, seek to pull one of these three core pillars from the foundation of the entire money market industry, by changing the primary assumptions of the key Money Market Rule 2a-7. A key proposal in the overhaul of money market regulation suggests that money market fund managers will have the option to “suspend redemptions to allow for the orderly liquidation of fund assets.”

    lol. Free Market. Yeah, except it isn’t a free market in the slightest. There is no uncertainty about the benefits GS gleans from its strong relationship with the federal government and the DoJ in particular. keep calling it a ‘free market’… keep missing the fine points and the big picture. Other than that, I’ve become a growing fan of your work.
