Better Markets Applauds Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari’s Remarks on Ending the Dangerous Too-Big-To-Fail Threat Hanging over the Economy and Americas’ Families
Washington, DC — Better Markets President and CEO Dennis Kelleher released this statement regarding Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari’s remarks delivered today on ending the threat posed to our economy from the too-big-to-fail firms:
“Minneapolis Fed President Kashkari’s voice is a welcome addition to the important debate about ending too-big-to-fail firms, which caused the 2008 financial crash, almost caused a second Great Depression and caused more than $20 trillion in economic damage to the US. He correctly recognizes that too-big-to-fail firms continue to threaten not only the financial system and the economy, but also the jobs, homes, savings and livelihoods of all Americans. While the devil is in the details, we welcome the Minneapolis Fed’s initiative to propose transformational change by year-end that will end the dangerous too-big-to-fail firms once and for all.”
