Have you SEEN the condition Greece is in? :)

I know progressives who want to delete “big banks” from that sentence. My question: what would our banking, lending, economy and freedom look like if (Washington-level) government bureaucrats and only government bureaucrats were in charge of it?

This is, after-all, the government that thinks loaning money to Solyndra provides a good return on money lent.

I’ll never forget the day JP Morgan-Chase told me that my small business account was not big enough for me to see the branch manager. I was there to demand an explanation as to why my business checking account was suddenly in the red, when I had a balance of a few thousand the day before, had made no charges or withdraws, in fact I had only made a very large check deposit from my client. It turns out the night before they had double posted this large check and to fix it, they charged it to my account, which went into the red, since my client’s check needed two days to clear. All my funds were held up for five days, and no one there was able or even wanted to help me.
MY WORKING CASH HELD UP FOR THEIR MISTAKE, AND THEY REFUSED TO RESOLVE IT.
THESE ARE NOT BANKS, THEY ARE GANGSTERS.
KEEP YOUR MONEY HOME, ONCE YOU GIVE IT TO THE BANKS YOU ARE AT THEIR MERCY.

To fix the mess, Government guarantees must be withdrawn from large banks, and limited to consumer deposits, as originally intended. Government has taken trillions from ordinary citizens and given it away to “banks”. Bring back Glass-Steagall and do it now.

If you listen to large organization lobbyists, the USA will fail as a political entity. Time for an intelligent statesman at the helm. But the closest one to that is Ron Paul, anathema to big Wall Street and to Israel and to the big militarists. And a rigged political system.

Regulatory costs hit them all, especially the ones who managed capital, were prudent lenders & had no use for the TARP money (therefore, those bankers took $0.0 TARP money).

New institutions are, or were not, chartered since the OCC / others were onerous on placing restrictions on the uses / deployment of capital (another thought to add).

The government needs to do what they did to Ma Bell – break these banks up into smaller entities to foster competition. They also need to replace the seperation between community banking and investment banking they dismantled when they revoked the Glass-Stegall act – that’s what lead to the mortgage crisis.

I pay all my bills online, i get a better interest rate, my money gets reinvested in my neighborhood, and no one is getting fat.
