The Dodd-Frank Bill Up Close

Someone at the House financial services committee was kind enough to post the entire Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act online, and so the idle pleasures of speculation must give way to the real work of reading the reams printed with the narrow column of the bill.
Glass Steagall was 34 pages long, the overhaul is 2,300, so if you want to know what the bill will accomplish (or at least what it says it will accomplish), the summary may do the trick. These ten pages cover a lot of ground.
