But, we cannot, either in the institutions themselves, or in the regulatory agencies, pretend that we can get along returning to a world that existed before the Great Recession and subsequent recovery.
In other words, the advancements are going to take place in these institutions and markets, one way or another, and business models and leadership skills are going to have to advance with them to run the institutions of the twenty-first century.
And the sophistication and complexity especially apply to the financial instruments that are a major part of these modern financial institutions.
After all, the culture of Wells Fargo is not Mr. He failed to oversee and control the culture of the organization he was responsible for, even if it was not a major part of bank.
It is not a question of "too big to fail.
