One curious absence in this legislation is the lack of any commentary regarding “debt masking” – that is, using repo transactions to reduce balance sheet at quarter-end in order to report lower leverage.

Given all the (bad) press repo has received lately, we thought there would be more explicit language in the bill regarding such activity.

CHUZPAH!
