SEC crimps money-market funds

SEC logoSeeking to avoid another financial meltdown, the S.E.C. issued new rules requiring money-market funds to hold more liquid assets and pay out less interest.  Law Professor Tamar Frankel, a securities law authority, says the new regs are puzzling in that they’ll only diminish returns on such funds that investors know such are not FDIC insured.

“Perhaps the time has come for their demise.”
