It's really just Kwak who replies.

He says that, while his and Johnson's book made it sound like the banks are calling the shots, and Tyler replied that, no, the government is calling the shots, there is no real disagreement: on both views, there is a government-banking complex that is making the important decisions.

He also says it will be "tough" to change this. (I hope he doesn't think that his and Johnson's book will contribute much toward that end.)

I am not sure which is the right place to ask this question but can someone help me resolve this: If republicans/conservatives are against big government because, in short, the government doesn't create wealth, shouldn't they be against big banks too? Banks don't create any wealth either, do they? (Aren't both simply redistributing wealth (while taking a fee in the process of providing that service)?)
