David Dayen explains the problem with liberal establishment attacks on Bernie Sanders and the deeper implications for reform policies.
-Why are establishment Democrats attacking the 21st century Glass-Steagall. Missing the point on stronger financial reform. Why institutions were to "interconnected" to fail. The need for structural reforms. The need for statutory reforms an the difficult of enforcing complex regulation. Restricting banking and protecting the economy. (11:30)
-"Shadow Banking" and the distraction from the larger issues. Eliminating fraud and what Elizabeth Warren's new Glass Steagall bill does. Why the arguments against serious banking reform is undermining vital economic protection, the global consensus on segregating assets in banking. Also why the attacks on Bernie Sanders matter beyond him. (31:00)
