“The Minneapolis Plan”…

…prepared by the Federal Reserve Bank of Mhas released its Minneapolis Plan to End Too Big to Fail (TBTF).The plan calls for raising capital requirements for the largest banks, while drastically reducing burden on the smallest banks. Leaving capital requirements at current levels leaves taxpayers at risk of a future crisis and bailout. Enacting the Minneapolis Plan would reduce the 100-year chance of a crisis from the current risk of 67 percent to only 9 percent, while generating substantial benefits relative to costs.
