Why change the way REITs are handled? It is one of the few ways an individual can still get some return from an investment.
The SEC was sleeping during the banking mess that screwed the average American and now you want to do this.
Why not put your energy into something useful. Insider Trading and High frequency trading come to mind.
Thank you.
