Sounds like a distinguished panel, except for this "Todd J. Zywicki" person of course ;)

Seriously though, I'm graduating in about two weeks and I just wanted to say thanks for all of your postings on bankruptcy-related issues. They were an invaluable starting point for some of my in-class discussions on the causes of bankruptcy filing which -- while I have never had a chance to take an actual bankruptcy course -- came up in about a half a dozen other classes I took.

Hopefully we'll get a chance to see (or hear via podcast) what you and the rest of the panel had to say in a future post.

I'd be interested to hear some proposals of the "Nudge" type on Consumer Credit Regulation: Allowing full flexibility between negotiating parties, but the initial or "default" option is not unconscionable boilerplate.

Wow, thanks--and good luck!
