Professor Michael Greenberger

Metrowest Newspapers - Former Texas Sen. Phil Gramm was the chief supporter of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 (CFMA) that, once passed, shielded financial institutions from so-called over-regulation. But the CFMA also created the Enron loophole and, some say, paved the way for the subprime mortgage meltdown. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said "if the Enron loophole is removed, you get at least a 25 percent drop in the cost of oil ... some people estimate 50 percent."

Malden Observer - New England residents could be headed for a particularly chilly winter as the cost of home heating oil continues to soar. In Massachusetts alone, prices have jumped more than 80 percent in the last year alone. Experts argue that excessive speculation in energy markets is partly to blame, forcing American consumers to face tough financial times at the expense of large financial institutions, pension funds, and hedge funds. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said "tighter control on speculators and market manipulation could immediately reduce fuel prices by 25 percent."
