Biz, U.S.: Banks: The bailout money’s too restrictive, we’re giving it back.

  • We are taking an approach that wants the banks to help the economy and whether it is ultimately good for a particular bank is secondary. Weak banks are being asked to do things that will erode their position.
  • L. William Seidman • A former senior regulator who presided over the savings and loan bailout.
