The authors offer opinions on U.S. banking law. Large financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Fannie Mae which are deemed "too big to fail" are said to pose a danger to the U.S. financial system. A series of laws and regulations are proposed which would serve to limit these companies' influence while bolstering the role of community banks.
