Great posting, intercst. Thanks.

The real question discussed briefly in the article is how will the industry react? Will they have other more profitable products to promote instead?

Will it be like discount broker commissions? They merely changed focus to emphasize other products?

Or will they be forced to make major changes in staffing and services to stay in business.

I'd like to see a detailed analysis in a few years of the effects of the new regs.
