Whoever wins the election next month may want to borrow a few paragraphs from Franklin D. Roosevelt's inaugural address some 66 years ago:
Finally, in our progress toward a resumption of work we require two safeguards against a return of the evils of the old order; there must be a strict supervision of all banking and credits and investments; there must be an end to speculation with other people's money, and there must be provision for an adequate but sound currency.From Bartleby.com.

Through this program of action we address ourselves to putting our own national house in order and making income balance outgo.
