Nationalize Banks That Overwhelm Regulation

If regulation was likely to fail to solve problems like those involved in the Madoff scheme, what then might be done with very large institutions? An alternative — now being urged by several Senators is that very large institutions be broken up. The problem here, a number of the Chicago School leaders pointed out, was that the anti-trust process was also commonly taken over by the large institutions. Milton Friedman later came to the same basic judgment. Furthermore, once broken up, significant institutions have a way of reconsolidating power, and are commonly soon back operating at the same scale or larger (as anti-trust efforts in connection with Standard Oil and AT&T also demonstrate.)
