There is never a crisis that simply passes.
Such events always lead to more regulation even when those creating the rules are clueless about what they are regulating. The 2007-2009 crisis did more that wipe out Lehman Brothers and Bear Stearns than anything else. The impact of the crisis led to a panic in money market funds. It was assumed that all money market funds were safe and that you would never get less than what you invested. That proved to be false in the midst of the Lehman failure.
The critical factor is always liquidity. Liquidity is the lifeblood of the financial system. When confidence is lost, people hoard money and do not invest or deposit in banks or money market funds. The SEC assumed that the run on money markets was simply because the Reserve Primary Fund fell below par value. They are not looking at the market as a whole and that could hurt many, if not all investors with retirement accounts.
