Instead, bond dealers are liquidating assets and shrinking credit teams. All this in a bid to comply with Basel Committee rules on Banking Supervision and the Dodd-Frank Act. Will regulations then defeat the attempt of central banks to stoke growth with cheap money? Read on to find out. (Bloomberg)
