Bernanke: Regulators Will Do More on 'Too Big to Fail' If Needed

Regulators would take additional steps to address "too big to fail" if current efforts fell short, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said at a news conference following the two-day Federal Open Market Committee meeting.

Bernanke noted that regulators have made progress addressing too big to fail, including new capital and liquidity rules for the largest institutions.

He and other regulators have emphasized that the Dodd-Frank Act's too-big-to-fail provisions should be given an opportunity to work; and explained that it's an issue that can only be resolved gradually.

The key to what Mr. Bernanke said on 'too big to fail' is that regulators would take additional steps if current efforts fell short. Most of Dodd-Frank and Basel III have not even been implemented yet. It will take some time to see if these efforts work. As I argued in my American Banker article earlier this week, in depth analysis is needed on the possible consequences of breaking up big banks. http://bit.ly/145QRtp Mayra Rodriguez Valladares
