Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen made waves in her Congressional testimony last week when she argued that social media and biotech stocks were over-valued.

I got my annual dose of humility this week when I attended the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference in Aspen, an event that brings Wall Street and Silicon Valley elite together for three days of talks and networking. I've been to it four years in a row now, and it's always a good ego check for me.

Policymakers should approve legislation that strengthens the bipartisan response from a decade ago -- and soon. Waiting for corporate or international tax reform will only invite more tax avoidance-driven corporate exits.
On July 21, 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act became law.
