One cheer for the belated SEC lawuit against Fannie/Freddie execs

It’s a start. Sorry I can’t get more enthusiastic than that. But knowing the long history of Fannie/Freddie execs escaping accountability, expectations must be managed. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is suing a half-dozen Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac officials for fraud and deception. “All individuals” will be held accountable for the Enron-style financial mess they […]
