More On The Bubbe Meisse of SIPC and The Trustee

Lawrence R. Velvel

Yesterday I posted quite a long set of comments on the hearing of February 2nd. It subsequently seemed to me that some of the most important points are in the last third or so of the essay, which discusses the basic underlying theory of SIPC and Picard and some of the major flaws in their theory. (I called the underlying theory a bubbe meisse (with hopes that my very limited understanding of Yiddish is correct).)

The reasons these matters strike me as especially important is that, when the fallaciousness of the underlying theory is exposed, the Trustee and SIPC are fundamentally left with only their claim that what they wish to do is fair (and must therefore be done regardless of what Congress intended), and what the victims desire is supposedly un fair and therefore must not be done regardless of what Congress intended.
