The Power to Break Up the Big Banks

Micah Hauptman, Public Citizen: ''If regulators do their jobs properly, the resulting institutions should be simpler, smaller, and safer. Those firms would be less likely to fail and less dangerous in the event that they do. Take Bank of America, for example. In its current form, it is a 'grave threat' by any reasonable definition of that phrase. On Wednesday, Public Citizen filed a petition with financial regulators, calling on them to break up the bank and reform it.''

John Reed on Big Banks' Power and Influence

Video

Bill Moyers, Moyers & Co.: 'Bill Moyers talks with former Citigroup Chairman John Reed to explore a momentous instance: how the mid-90 s merger of Citicorp and Travelers Group and a friendly Presidential pen brought down the Glass-Steagall Act, a crucial firewall between banks and investment firms which had protected consumers from financial calamity since the aftermath of the Great Depression. In effect, says Moyers, they put the watchdog to sleep.''
