The article examines the policies on the financial services industry advocated by U.S. presidential candidate John McCain. McCain has proposed relatively few measures to cope with the collapse of the housing bubble, and his policy statements on finance in general are less detailed than those of his rival Barack Obama. Douglas Holtz-Eakin, McCain's lead economic adviser, states that McCain is waiting to evaluate the full effect of the housing problem.
