It is no secret that the banks own the U.S. government. For example:

  • Collin Peterson, Chairman of the Agriculture Committee, said [4]: “The banks run the place … I will tell you what the problem is — they give three times more money than the next biggest group. It’s huge the amount of money they put into politics.”

Of course, not all banks are equal. For example, Goldman Sachs clearly has a leading role [5].
