The Big Picture
The big picture is simple:
- The big banks manipulate every market they touch
- Too much interconnectedness leads to financial instability 
- The government has given the banks huge subsidies  … which they are using for speculation  and other things  which don’t help the economy. In other words, propping up the big banks by throwing money at them doesn’t help the economy
- Top economists, financial experts and bankers say  that the big banks are too large … and their very size is threatening the economy. They say we need to break up the big banks  to stabilize the economy
Get it? Break up the big banks, or they will continue to take over and manipulate more and more of the economy … increasing their profits while making everyone else poorer.
