“That would drive managers out of the United States.” via Treasury Maps New Era of Regulation – WSJ.com.

So just wondering, why would driving hedge funds out of business in this country be a bad thing? How many inventions have they funded, how many jobs created?

I may be completely ignorant about the big positive success stories, I need to learn.
