    Well, that won't last with the cat out of the bag. The Financial community will whip up public sentiment against it as Congress starts putting the screws to Wall St.

    a little off-topic but still investment related:

    Stop Wallstreet Favors

    [quote]

    As the global economy melted down and millions of Americans lost their homes, the bankers on Wall Street who caused this mess got billions in taxpayer bailouts. Did they pay their fair share? No. The super wealthy continue to hide their money in an off-shore shell game that costs the rest of us millions if not billions.
    Tell Congress to stop doing favors for Wall Street, and pass the Stop Tax-Haven Abuse Act now! The Stop Tax-Haven Abuse Act would crack down on the use of offshore tax-havens, the abuse of tax shelters by the super wealthy, and make it more difficult to avoid taxes by funneling money through foreign corporations.
    Because we should all pay our fair share.
