Fast or easy ? Not for SEC's Mary Schapiro

As Mary Schapiro took the lead as SEC Chair last year, she vowed to quickly pursue short-selling restrictions and other changes.

"We have to understand the real-life implications of what we're doing, the unintended consequences. We need to digest all the comments and all the economic analysis. And that leads us down a path that sometimes isn't 100% predictable at the beginning."
