Too big to fail

I'm not sure I've done any posts on financial regulation, so here's a first. I've long been intrigued by the "too big to fail" problem and without too much knowledge on the subject, it's struck me that "too big to fail" is "too big." This article is a very wonky, but very clear explanation of the too big to fail problem. From what I've read from trusted bloggers on the matter, we're not addressing this significantly, but now I can understand exactly what they're talking about. And, now I definitely believe that too big to fail is too big.
