Furthermore the Treasury and the Feds did not want to have to provide failing banks with money from the government for several of reasons. Paulson states, “he notes that the American people were not happy to see big compensation packages for an industry needing government help” (283 Paulson). Some think government bailouts are bad because for proponents of a mostly capitalist economy, government mediation in the "free" markets is theoretically and often essentially bad in the long run. If the government continues to bail out companies time and time again, Most people will see it not as a way to avoid the domino effect that a bank failure would cause in the deposits, loans, investment and other markets. In fact, they just see it as the government giving money to rich people despite their mistakes so that the rich can continue to become

Tom Coburn (R-OK), Ranking Member stated that he is not interested in USPS owning a bank or operating as one, he is also not interested in hearting about the USPS becoming an insurance company. Megan J. Brennan expressed the concern to innovate at the core, such as grocery delivering which has already taken place in several markets. Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) expressed concerns on what “ the last mile” means for rural America and how can we begin to put our faith in PS in rural America again and that service standards are not what they use to be.
Not having any proof of his involvement or leadership of this rebellion, Gallatin was not arrested. Gallatin went on to hold the position of Secretary of the Treasury under Thomas Jefferson and James Madison for thirteen years. He was heavily involved, if not responsible for reducing the national debt and was against internal taxes. Gallatin would have been considered a strict constructionist because he believed that the less involvement the government had, the better. He also recommended that the First Bank of the United States be re-chartered, insisting that it could help stabilize the economy.
“Generation Debt” by Alethea Spiridon is an argumentative essay that outlines the harsh reality of student loans. The author examines the consequences of student loans as well the reasons higher education should not come as an expense to the individual pursuing it. In the current job market a post-secondary degree is a prerequisite for almost any profession and the sad reality is that this costly degree is not a guarantee of future wealth. The author effectively explains why treating education like a luxury good can impoverish everyone, and outlines ways student debt can burden graduates’ lives. However, she fails to examine the reasons student loans can be advantageous, and this is problematic because there are several missing benefits including manageable reimbursement options, lower interest rates, as well as student friendly terms and conditions when compared to a standard loan.

The Dodd-Frank Act is a federal law that places regulation of the financial industry in the government. It grew out of the Great Recession with the purpose of avoiding another collapse of a major financial institution. It is intended to safeguard consumer’s procedures to prevent borrowers from being taken advantage of by banks and financial institutions using misleading or deceptive activities or procedures when lending money for mortgages or other purposes. Personally, I think this law is a failure. The act presented that it would terminate the “Too-big-to-fail” and help financial stability.
A lot of states didn’t like this because there was nothing in the Constitution that says Congress can do this. So the state of Maryland decided to try and get rid of it, by taxing it. So the question was can a state tax a federal bank and can Congress create a national bank that states have to live with? Chief Justice John Marshall found the Necessary and Proper Clause gave Congress the flexibility to create the bank as an aid to carrying out its enumerated borrowing and taxing powers and that Maryland’s taxation of the bank violated the Supremacy Clause. Another example of Congress’ power to make laws was the U. S. vs. Comstock case which gave a wide understanding of the Necessary and Proper Clause.
In fact after this date banks cannot be commercial and investment banks at the same time, also the insurance services cannot be supply by banks. The Glass-Steagall act prohibited to banks to issue, sell or distributed every security they wanted. A new order for banking was a result of crisis and crisis was a result of excessive credit creation, and it had been followed, as Irving Fisher argued in 1933, by a debt deflation.
It recognizes two kinds of independence; independence in fact and independence in appearance. In this case, both Enron and Arthur Andersen had been not independent in fact and in appearance. The shareholders and management of Enron should not choose Arthur Andersen as the external auditor since the chairman of audit committee, CFO and most of the accounting staffs were used to work in Arthur Andersen public accounting firm. Arthur Andersen should also refused the offer to become the external auditors of Enron because it will be not independent for them to audit the company since there was an indirect relationship between the people who used to work in Andersen with the public accounting firm itself. It will lead them to be not independent in appearance.
