Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

She wrote about it extensively in the dailyKos thread (linked to in a comment above). She sees the City as regulating itself pretty well.

And as I had the pleasure to have lunch with her yesterday in London, and we actually discussed regulatory issues, because she is very much involved in these things, I'd certainly encourage you to read what she has to say - she very obviously knows what she's talking about!

How come you never have lunch with me when you come to London? (Granted, I don't work anywhere near Canary Wharf)

Are you actually in London? I had put you in a not-so-close county (gloucester?) but maybe my geography is confused.

If you are able to come over somewhere not too far from the City, I'm sure we can set up something next time. I come over once or twice a month.

I live just north of the centre of this map, but I work near the West End. There is an interesting connection with Gloucester, though, I wonder where you got that piece of info from...

Not sure how long this particular link will last, but this is what your profile looks like on the SiteMeter's "Who's On" page: http://www.sitemeter.com/?a=stats&s=s21jerome&v=89&r=9&vlr=15&pg=21&d=322

Yes, I did engage over there.

However, there's a big gap between "self-regulation works better than govt regulation" and "self-regulation actually works well."
