Reader comment on: Goldman, Facebook, SEC

You don't have to have an opinion on the price of Facebook to see this as a disaster, nor do you have to wait five years to know whether to be mad at the SEC. You just have to believe that it's not the government's job to restrict people's decisions about what risks to take with their own money.
Regardless of whether $50 billion turns out to be too high, too low, or just right, investors should be able to invest or not as they choose, without the SEC making those decisions for them.
