Regulations were undermined by appointing anti-regulators to head the agencies; laws were repealed and the only remaining check, the personal probity of those involved, was hosed away by a torrent of profits obtained by competitors whose probity was for rent. Gresham's Law prevailed and all that was left were fraudsters and rent-a-fools.
