Arianna: Move Your Money And Make Too-Big-To-Fail Banks Smaller (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Arianna appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann Thursday to explain Move Your Money, a project that encourages Americans to fight back against Wall Street's too-big-to-fail culture by moving their money from bailed out big banks to smaller, better-managed community banks. Olbermann gave the "brilliantly simple" project a ringing endorsement:

"Remember the banks that were too big to fail, the ones that took billions in taxpayer money and used that money not to help you with a loan, but to sweeten their balance sheets and pay lobbyists to fight financial reform...? Well, it turns out that you are not powerless in their... grasp... time to make those too-big-to-fail banks just a little bit smaller by moving your money to a local community bank."
