Dodd-Frank Implementation

In: Finance Politics Stock Market US Economy

An interesting chart on different benchmarks that are required by the Bill. At closer inspection though, you realize all it does is describe the sections and count the requirements. It would have been nice if you could drill down and see the details of each of the colored lines, for example. The main impression remains, however: the Bill’s implementation is very complicated – which I suppose is in contrast to the wide agreement that it doesn’t actually solve any of our financial systems’ problems.

It’s funny in its complexity, and it’s pretty, but it’s not a useful graphic, and the information is not too complex to understand. Two graphs, one sorting the outcome dates by agency, the other chronological, would both be decipherable. The matching of one order with the other is unnecessary. By emphasizing the complexity, the chart misses things that aren’t too difficult to understand.
