SEC porn surfers: Off with their …

    Porn surfing on the public’s dime is a no-no. On that we can all agree, I think. But given how toothless the SEC had become under the Reagan-Gingrich-Bush “get the government off the back of business” approach to regulation, I don’t think it would have made a dime’s worth of difference if they’d spent no time ooogling on-line cuties. After all, the man setting the fiscal tone for the nation was Alan Greenspan, who refused to believe that major corporations in the financial markets would be so dumb as to, out of greed, make decisions that put their companies’ survival at risk. He’s since admitted, post crash, that he’s had to rethink “everything” he once believed about how financial services companies make decisions.. That’s real nice, Alan, but a little late.

    And while Greenspan/Gingrich/Reagan/Bush were banging their laissez faire drums, “don’t ask, don’t tell” was the prevailing governing philosophy at the SEC and at the Fed. Given that, I don’t think it would have mattered at all if nary a single porn site had been accessed at work. Not at all.
