Not only should the SEC reinstate SEC Rule 10a-1, the Uptick Rule but the double and triple short EFT's need be made illegal. Fear that the average investor can't complete in a market when the short sellers can control the market is rampid.

Bear Searns and Lehman Brothers might not have survived due to their incompletence but at least they might have had a chance to survice.
