  • The World Meteorological Organization Would Like Just a Moment of Your Time
    The Green Mien, Peter Lohnes, 9/9/2014

    You don’t have to read the whole report which isn’t long, but is full of “facts” and “numbers” and “science” and things of that sort. Just look over the WMO’s press release about its latest greenhouse gas bulletin – the chill you feel may compensate for the heat we’re generating. The report has thorny sentences like this: […]

  • Waiting for Dodd-Frank Clawbacks
    Race to the Bottom, J Robert Brown Jr., 9/29/2014

    SOX for the first time provided a provision that allowed for clawbacks of executive compensation in certain limited circumstances. The provision sought to fill a serious gap in the corporate governance process. Fiduciary duties were sufficiently anemic that they failed to compel boards to seek to recover compensation paid on the basis of financial statements that later proved to be materially inaccurate. As a result, Congress was forced to...

  • You Should Listen To The Goldman New York Fed Story
    Conglomerate, David Zaring, 9/29/2014

    This American Life has a banking supervision story (!) that turns on secret recordings made by a former employee of the New York Fed, Carmen Segarra, and it's pretty good, because it shows how regulators basically do a lot of their regulating of banks through meetings, with no action items after. That's weird, and it's instructive to see how intertiwned banking and supervision are. There's a killer meeting after a meeting with Goldman Sachs...

    CLS Blue Sky Blog, Cheryl Barnes, 9/29/2014

    Law Firm Memos
    Whether you’re looking for a nuanced legal interpretation of an obscure topic or just a primer on an issue you need to grasp quickly, our remarkable Law Firm Memos database has what you need. This “virtual law firm” is updated daily and features over 100,000 memos, articles, and alerts from attorneys in North America’s top law firms.
    Long one of Knowledge Mosaic’s most popular features, the Law Firm Memos database features expert legal commentary on 46 searchable topics, including such diverse areas as Antitrust & Competition, Energy, Intellectual Property, Labor & Employment, Public Health & Health Care, and Transportation law. You can even set up a customized email alert by topic, authoring firm, or text string.
    Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials
    Discover why we toyed with naming this search page "The Kitchen Sink." Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials offers nothing less than federated searching across the entire federal legislative and regulatory landscape.
    Here’s what that means. From a single starting point, you can troll across a broad swath of federal agencies -- including major financial, antitrust, energy, environmental, communications, and labor regulators -- plus major congressional oversight bodies, Congress itself, the Federal Register, even the statutory and regulatory codes that define the laws and rules of our country. All that coverage, integrated, faceted, unified, and simple.
    Our ambitious goal is to display the abundance of materials and information that spills beyond traditional agency boundaries on any important topic. We want to bridge the Beltway and sweep away the search silos that currently constrain research and limit the transparency of government information.
    GAO Reports
    Everything under the sun — or at least every subject under the purview of public policymakers — has at some point been studied by the Government Accountability Office, the federal think tank commonly known as the "Congressional watchdog."
    On Knowledge Mosaic’s Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials page, there are over 40,000 GAO reports, on topics as diverse as cybersecurity, nuclear waste disposal, the Troubled Asset Relief Program, anabolic steroid use among athletes, the U.S. embargo on Cuba, alternative fuels, campaign finance reform, and the regulation of hedge funds. This vast archive of information is easily accessible and instantly searchable. As a single source for in-depth, professional research and analysis covering a broad spectrum of subject matter, our GAO reports database is unrivaled — except, perhaps, by our comparably broad and deep database of Law Firm Memos.
