What the Treasury and Crony America Should Discuss at Their Damn Meeting

This announcement was just made by the Treasury:
On Friday morning, Deputy Secretary Neal Wolin will give opening remarks at the Finance Data Conference hosted at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.  The conference is a part of Treasury’s Finance Data Initiative and will explore how data sets published by federal agencies can be harnessed by the private sector to help empower consumers to take control of their financial lives.
Well here's my comment to that:

Consumers can empower their financial lives once the government stops poking, collecting and tracking data on all sectors of our lives. Once government stops harassing private sector businesses that we want to deal with (for the latest see InTrade closed to Americans). Once the Treasury stops holding meetings with crony capitalists who want to explore how to mine data collected and published by the government. Discuss this at your damn meeting.
