CEI Congratulates Hester Peirce

Competitive Enterprise Institute President Kent Lassman congratulated Hester Peirce on her confirmation to the Securities and Exchange Commission:

“Hester Peirce understands the real dangers Dodd-Frank places on consumers. Today’s financial markets are tangled with overregulation and Peirce brings the experience of a regulatory practitioner and the incisive eye of an academic to bear at the SEC. With her on board, there is more hope that the SEC can protect consumers with common sense.”
