Losing $2 billion

And the losses at JP Morgan, one of todays “best-managed” banks, continue to mount.  Apparently banks can fail even if they are too big.  Question of why the government has been so remiss in not applying the Sherman Antitrust Act to address the issue of it being too big.  It’s been, what, 3 1/2 years now since the sub-prime mortgage crisis?   Surely THAT has been enough time for the federal government to do everything that it needed to do to address every problem inherent in that “too big-ness”.
