This is Bart Chilton. He has amazing hair.
Bart Chilton has been a commissioner on the Commodities Futures Trading Commission since 2007 and is easily the coolest financial regulator of all time. Look at his hair! Look. At. His. Hair.
Anyway, Bart Chilton gives speeches that are almost as amazing as his splendiferous blond locks. He gave one this February that was several riffs on the color red. But the one he gave today at the Yale Club in New York City, titled "Cinema of Uncertainty," may take the cake. It's a call for writing strong rules in Dodd-Frank, the 2010 financial reform and regulation bill, as explained through a ton of movie references. Here are almost all of them:
The Great Gatsby
Belly of the Beast
Planes, Trains, And Automobiles
It's A Wonderful Life
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Gone With The Wind
Clash of the Titans
Field of Dreams
