Fed’s fisher wants biggest banks broken up

Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher said Wednesday the nation’s largest financial institutions likely need to be broken into less threatening operations, adding he also supports an increase in the central bank’s emergency lending rate. Fisher said he supports “an international accord to break up these institutions into ones of more manageable size. More manageable for both the executives of these institutions and their regulatory supervisors.”
