Why A Fed President Wants To Break Up The Banks

Richard Fisher's plan.

'The system is biased towards Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan.'

Excellent Bloomberg interview.  Dallas Federal Reserve President Richard Fisher details his plan to break up the banks.  Here's a quick summary:

  • There are 12 banks that meet the criteria for too big to fail.
  • Dodd-Frank is killing small community banks.
  • Fed is constantly reassessing stimulus.
  • QEternity is false.  Will not last forever.
  • Voted against latest round of QE.
  • Worried about Treasury bubble bursting.
  • Worried about Fed's exit strategy.
  • Biggest inflation hawk on the Fed and he sees little inflation.

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Investors were momentarily gleeful that online megaretailer Amazon.com Inc. reported slightly better operating results in the fourth quarter, but how long this euphoria will last is the big question, given the company’s razor-thin margins.

Couple things:

-did not know GSuchs has depositors. Who are they and how much? Finally though, MSM reminds us that GSuchs is a bank holding company with Fed access; and

-does anyone else think it odd that a Fed prez' kids and yamilka Lloyd's kids hang (and likely the parents hang)? Raises questions for me and highlights the coziness of the Fed system and the players within.

BTW, wonder if Fisher still holds $1mil in gold?

I've seen the numbers before - They are tiny. GS bought a bank when the Fed gave them a chance back in 2008 and PRESTO they became a bank holding company.
