Vice chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Thomas Hoenig said, “The U.S. should go forward as quickly as it can to adopt our version of the leverage ratio. Then we can look at the new Basel version and see if it is comparable or better and incorporate it later into ours if necessary. There’s no need to wait.”
