Should We Break Up The Big Banks?

Should We Break Up The Big Banks?

To prevent the collapse of the global financial system in 2008, The Treasury committed 245 billion in taxpayer dollars to stabilize America’s banking institutions. Today, banks that were once “too big to fail” have only grown bigger.

The debaters are Richard Fisher, Simon Johnson, Douglas Elliott, and Paul Salzman.
