Time to Shrink the Big Banks

So if the banks are now healthy I propose we implement a program to encourage big banks  to get smaller so they’re not too big to fail.

 

What I recommend is that we reduce or eliminate FDIC for too big to fail banks. Doing so would let consumers decide if they want to keep their money in a “too big to fail bank” or move to smaller bank offering FDIC. The hard part of deciding which banks are too big to fail has already been determined, so now we just need to implement this simple but very effective change. Also I would require all banks to disclose their financials and exposure to very assets classes in the lobby of the bank in electronic form for anyone to peruse.

 

Insurance encourages people to do unwise things. Eliminating it should create more rational behavior.
