Senator Evan Bayh spoke to the financial Masters of the Universe at the Wall Street Journal's Future of Finance Initiative. Economic Policy Journal shared the good Senator's Mark Twain quote:
"You can lead a man to Congress, but you can't make him think."
Funny, although I expected Twain to say:
"You can buy a seat in Congress, then you own his vote."
Senator Bayh spoke to an elite group of financial bigwigs, two of which work for Bayh's seventh largest lifetime donor, The Carlyle Group. Co-founder David Rubenstein and Senior Adviser Arthur Levitt happen to lead global and U.S. efforts to reform the financial system. How might the Carlyle Group and private equity underwriters (PEU's) fair in reform? Sweetly, I presume.
