Krugman on Reform

Paul Krugman has a smart insight about financial (or any) reform. Straightforward reform only needs mediocre regulators. Highly specialized and nuanced reform requires smart regulators to implement right. Get the so-so regulators with complex reform and you'll get something far worse than no reform at all.
That doesn’t make financial reform useless. But it is a worry, since you can’t count on always having smart, well-intentioned people doing the regulating.
Always? How about ever?
