Clinton’s Plan to Get Tough on Wall Street

Hillary Clinton will on Friday unveil a set of proposals aimed at encouraging companies and investors to favor long-term growth over the “tyranny of today’s earnings report.” 

In the second economic policy speech of her campaign, to be delivered Friday afternoon at New York University’s Stern School of Business, Clinton plans to offer up proposals aimed squarely at the nation's investor class. They range from overhauling capital gains rates and the taxation of executive compensation, to better policing of shareholder activism and stock buybacks.
