[VIDEO] Wall Street Legend Sandy Weill: Break Up the Big Banks


Former Citigroup Chairman & CEO Sanford I. Weill, the man who invented the financial supermarket, called for the breakup of big banks in an interview on CNBC Wednesday.

“What we should probably do is go and split up investment banking from banking, have banks be deposit takers, have banks make commercial loans and real estate loans, have banks do something that’s not going to risk the taxpayer dollars, that’s not too big to fail,” Weill told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

He added: “If they want to hedge what they’re doing with their investments, let them do it in a way that’s going to be mark-to-market so they’re never going to be hit.”

He essentially called for the return of the Glass–Steagall Act, which imposed banking reforms that split banks from other financial institutions such as insurance companies.

    “radical breaking up the banks”??? why is that a radical idea. Back in the days the banks were broken up and had to follow strick guidelines!! It was only during the Bush era when de-regulations of Wall Street etc came about, is when the banks, Wall Street etc went buck wild, high on greed, and participating in criminal activities in order to make more and more money that brought us to the brink of economic collaspe!!
