Read up on this act and found some pretty interesting things. Overall it sounds good, keeping tabs on stuff to prevent another "crisis", but the power and sometimes more importantly the exemptions the agency that was created by this act has is amazing.

The data collection and analysis parts are very concerning also. The wiki article on it is very long but worth looking through, here is a bit of what I thought was intriguing. The Office of Financial Research has power like no other agency.
