Ancestral homes tell a story. Of families and fortunes as they swell and ebb. That room was added when the elder son got married. That backyard was converted into two rooms for the nephew who moved in with his wife. That portion, beyond the wall, was the one that was sold off when the land ceiling Act took away the family land. While families can feel warm and sentimental about messy old homes, similar feelings are hard to generate when the financial regulatory system of a transforming economy shows signs of patchwork and years of political placating.
