When the Group of 20 meets in Pittsburgh this week, a focus will be a push for banks to keep more reserves to prevent another crash. Former Deputy Comptroller of the Currency Bob Bench, now a senior fellow at the BU School of Law’s Morin Center for Banking and Financial Law, says this is necessary because the invisible hand of the marketplace has failed.
“The Reagan/Thatcher period of deregulation is over. It is in the best interest of the financial institutions themselves to fortify their financial conditions so as to restore trust in the marketplace.”
