The Big Banks Have Gotten Bigger

In a post called “Break Up the Big Banks”, Rolfe Winkler provides a nice graphic showing that the too big to fails have gotten bigger:

The big have gotten even bigger since the start of the financial crisis. At the end of 2007, the Big Four banks — Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo — held 32 percent of all deposits in FDIC-insured institutions. As of June 30th, it was 39 percent.

In total, they had $3.8 trillion worth of deposits as of June 30th. Compare that figure to the FDIC’s Deposit Insurance Fund, which showed a balance of just $10.4. billion on the same date.

    Is there any possibility for theses major banks to grow (or grew) with the foreclosure crisis? I mean, by getting back the homes and selling them?

    Ah yes… Mission accomplished, again.The American people are immensely poorer, by a factor of ten perhaps, -but the big American banks still hold their empirical supremacy over the world's terror-stricken stage.Stop saying economics is a fraud, if'n you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.Long live the American Agenda! We're number one! We're number one!

A penny for a spool of thread, A penny for a needle— That's the way the money goes, Pop! goes the weasel. Jimmy's got the whooping cough And Timmy's got the measles That's the way the story goes Pop! goes the weasel. All around the vinegar jug The monkey chased the weasel; The monkey pulled the stopper out, Pop! goes the weasel. I've got no time to wait aside, No time to sit and bide my time, I'm off for now. Hello, Goodbye! Pop! goes the weasel. All around the vinegar jug The monkey chased the weasel; The monkey pulled the stopper out, Pop! goes the weasel. I've got no time to wait aside, No time to sit and bide my time, I'm off for now. Hello, Goodbye! Pop! goes the weasel.
