The author discusses the 2008 U.S. financial market crisis and says that in order to fix it, all banks and financial institutions should be forced to be more transparent and show all of their bad loans and debts plainly. She says that another important step toward solving the problem will be insisting that banks retain large capital holdings, big enough to weather financial crises.
