Does Peter Orszag Have No Shame? Ctd

Chait counters Wilkinson:

As Wilkinson semi-concedes later on in his item, it's not really true that "well-connected wonks can get rich on Wall Street only because Washington power is now so unconstrained."

Given that fact, the only answer is to create social norms and regulatory barriers to minimize excessive special interest as best as possible.
