Elizabeth Warren warned about the coming financial crisis and is championing the creation of a Consumer Finance Protection Agency.

Brooksley Born & Janet Tavakoli warned of the dangers of "shadow banking" over a decade ago.

And now we have Ms. Cantwell, waging a war against Wall Street and their stooges both in and out of Washington.

I'm usually anti-discrimination but does any one else think that maybe are financial system should be run by women?

It seems like the ones really pushing for reform are the women and the greed and arrogance of men that got us into this mess, though I recognize it was Ann Ryand that got Greenie swooning over the self-regulating market fantasy.

Mom comes home with several dresses she'd just bought and tells dad, "it was on sale, look how much money I saved you". Dad looks at the price tag and says, "yep, but look how much of my money you spent that you could have saved by not buying the dresses."

Most working women spend more on shoes than they put into their pensions

I wouldn't mind. I for one let my wife handle all the bill related stuff, as she is much more detailed than I am. Most of my past loves were the same way, they were much better at saving and investing money than I was. Hell, how much worse could it get, if we gave them a shot anyway?
