The former Bank of England Governor Lord King has warned that the problems with the British banking system also revolve around the issue of a "bank too big to fail" a critical factor which has not yet been resolved. We allowed a banking system to build up which contained the seeds of its own destruction. The Governor has also addressed the question of "moral hazard" being that a bank behaves different because it is insulated from risk on previous occasions. In 2009 he warned that the governments decision to bail out British banks had "created possibly the biggest moral hazard in history".
Lord King compares the banking culture of short-term profits and bonuses with that of traditional manufacturing industries which he says operate in a more "moral" manner. They care deeply about their workforce about their customers and above all are proud of their products. With the banks there isn't that sense of longer term relationships.
Lord King expressed surprise that there had not been more public anger over spending cuts. He told the Treasury select committee: "The price of this financial crisis is being borne by people who absolutely did not cause it I'm surprised that the degree of public anger here has not been as great as what has been seen in the United States."
The US Congress Senate Oversight Committee responsible for the nations security and financial well being are understood to be also taking a close interest following recent announcements by close aides to President Obama concerning the new pivotal offshore tax evasion and banking legislation which is thought in Washington to be a "critical further lever of strategic control" for the US Justice Department and the FBI in the concrete fight back against white collar organized crime tax fraud and terror funding related activities which have seriously undermined the much sought after economic recovery for America's main street who have suffered greatly at the hands of the financial sector.
Further disclosures which been revealed in American and British media reports on the massive Carroll Foundation Charitable Trust national security case is understood to have galvanized well seasoned Washington political observers who are understood to have recently remarked that this case is now regarded in Washington as an "important show of strength to the nation" at a critical point in the Obama administration's four year term.
