    I don't have the time nor the interest in educating you on banking or the banking regulations. Too long and involved. Can't you Google and do some research? You may want to if you're seriously championing Warren. Do you always champion a politician's actions and views on something that - by your own admission here - you know little about?

    I'm not the economy, and never claimed to be so I'm not sure why you blurted that out? You said that banks were riding roughshod over the economy. I'm part of the economy, and they never rode roughshod over me. So I'll ask you again...how did they ride roughshod over you?

And the smaller banks weren't even the ones behind the problems in the 2007-2008 years. But they are bearing the brunt.
    So the reason the big banks are getting bigger is because of regulation? I just want to know if I read you right.

    Is she a native american? That's the question I want to know. We should give her this test.

    Of course. Clinton represents the centre-right status quo, in which banks can run roughshod over the economy.
    The banks are still paying off the clintons for what they have done for them. all of this economic destruction is because of clinton. You need to research more, Because you do not seem to have a grasp of what is really going on in this country and the world.

    week before khadafi went down the rebels created a central bank! what do rebels know about central banking? Nothing but now you know why he is dead.

    I Googled it like you asked:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financi...007%E2%80%9308

    The financial crisis of 2007–2008, also known as the Global Financial Crisis and 2008 financial crisis, is considered by many economists the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.[1] It resulted in the threat of total collapse of large financial institutions, the bailout of banks by national governments, and downturns in stock markets around the world. In many areas, the housing market also suffered, resulting in evictions, foreclosures and prolonged unemployment. The crisis played a significant role in the failure of key businesses, declines in consumer wealth estimated in trillions of U.S. dollars, and a downturn in economic activity leading to the 2008–2012 global recession and contributing to the European sovereign-debt crisis.[2][3] The active phase of the crisis, which manifested as a liquidity crisis, can be dated from August 9, 2007, when BNP Paribas terminated withdrawals from three hedge funds citing "a complete evaporation of liquidity".[4]

    ...

    Many causes for the financial crisis have been suggested, with varying weight assigned by experts.[13] The U.S. Senate's Levin–Coburn Report concluded that the crisis was the result of "high risk, complex financial products; undisclosed conflicts of interest; the failure of regulators, the credit rating agencies, and the market itself to rein in the excesses of Wall Street."[14]

    ...

    The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission concluded that the financial crisis was avoidable and was caused by "widespread failures in financial regulation and supervision," "dramatic failures of corporate governance and risk management at many systemically important financial institutions," "a combination of excessive borrowing, risky investments, and lack of transparency" by financial institutions, ill preparation and inconsistent action by government that "added to the uncertainty and panic," a "systemic breakdown in accountability and ethics," "collapsing mortgage-lending standards and the mortgage securitization pipeline," deregulation of over-the-counter derivatives, especially credit default swaps, and "the failures of credit rating agencies" to correctly price risk.[15] The 1999 repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act effectively removed the separation between investment banks and depository banks in the United States.[16] Critics argued that credit rating agencies and investors failed to accurately price the risk involved with mortgage-related financial products, and that governments did not adjust their regulatory practices to address 21st-century financial markets.[17] Research into the causes of the financial crisis has also focused on the role of interest rate spreads.[18]
    So I'll ask you again...how did they ride roughshod over you?
    I'm a Canadian, we have a different banking system.

    Yeah, and Warren is trying to reverse what Clinton did. Why aren't you supporting her?
