Separate Investment Banking from Insured Depository Banking
Dodd-Frank did not correct the problem. Banks which enjoy deposit insurance are still free to gamble with securities.
A proposed bill:
112TH CONGRESS – 1ST SESSION H. R. 1489
To repeal certain provisions of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and revive the separation between commercial banking and the securities business, in the manner provided in the Banking Act of 1933, the so-called ‘‘Glass-Steagall Act’’, and for other purposes.
