Breaking Up Banks Won’t Make Them Safer, Ex-Senator Gramm Says

Breaking Up Banks Won’t Make Them Safer, Ex-Senator Gramm Says

This wouldn’t be the same Gramm who’s wife CFTC chair Wendy Gramm was called Corrupt & Criminal by a judge? As well as a board member of ENRON?

Oh… of course it is!

Bloomberg-

Phil Gramm, the former U.S. senator who helped write the 1999 law that enabled the creation of financial giants such as Citigroup Inc. (C) and Bank of America Corp., said his legislation didn’t make the system any riskier.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act repealed the 1933 prohibition against federally insured depository institutions combining with securities firms and insurers. While his law allows deposit- taking banks to affiliate with securities firms through holding companies, depositors and taxpayers are protected because affiliates can’t take capital out of the banks, Gramm said in a telephone interview yesterday.

“I don’t see any evidence that allowing them to affiliate through holding companies had anything to do with the financial crisis nor has anybody ever presented any evidence to suggest that it did,” said Gramm, 70. Companies that failed such as Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. “tended to be narrowly focused.”
