    Richard will you please increase the volume of your broadcasts? I can barely hear you even if there is no other noise going on where I am listening. Thank you. Chris Jonsson, Dallas, TX. I am a subscriber.

    In the first part of the show, you discussed Jerome Powell’s statement that there are no “too big to fail” banks. I was puzzled by this. Is he just stupid? Is he saying that he would not repeat a bailout no matter how big the banks are? So I tracked down some of the reporting. The missing piece is that he is representing the big banks’ interests by opposing regulation. I think it is important to make that clear.

    Thanks for a great show!

    A very good explanation of what a public bank is and how it can benefit the public i.e. us!.
