Professor Michael Greenberger

McClatchy Newspapers - President Bush, John McCain and Barack Obama each claim to know what policy will help lower gas prices, but experts say all three are off the mark. Bush wants to increase oil drilling in Alaska and offshore; McCain wants to suspend the federal gas tax; Obama has called for a tax on the profits of oil companies. Increased regulation is endorsed by Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

LogisticsManagement.com - Feeling the economic pressure of record diesel full prices, the American Trucking Association applauded the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) for vowing to increase regulation of U.S. oil markets. Experts argue that excessive oil futures trading by large financial institutions on unregulated markets is driving up the cost of gas, and consumers are paying the price. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former director at the CFTC, said the commission still has work to do, and its intention to obtain more information about futures trading on exchanges overseen by officials in London and Dubai was an "abdication of its responsibility. . .and an outrage."

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

The Baltimore Sun - In an Op-Ed about the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, a professor at the School of Law, wrote, "In the next few days, the historical narrative about the presidential primary race between Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton will become set in stone. The contest between a powerful and talented black man and a powerful and talented white woman has already become, in the minds of many, a story about the continuing power of sexism over racism as a barrier to equality. But very little about the candidacy of Hillary Clinton reflected feminism."

Business Week, The Electric New Paper (Singapore), Executive Intelligence Review The Salt Lake Tribune - After the price of oil climbed $16 a barrel in just two days last week, the average cost of a gallon of regular gasoline jumped above $4 for the first time. Now Congress and federal regulators have vowed to crack down on excessive futures trading on U.S. oil markets and to take action as soon as possible. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and a former director at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said "the only way to permanently deflate the [commodities] market is to ensure more aggressive oversight."
