Banking Regulation and Special Features

Take the main bank which you consider 'your' bank. Suppose the bank manager has asked you to support an imaginary petition to remove some of the 'over-burdening' regulations that the bank has to comply with. Keep in mind that the sub-prime mortgage crisis arose in part because the regulations governing mortgage lending had been almost totally relaxed.

Submit a two to three page paper that describes your bank including some statements regarding:

- The reasons you chose this bank.

- The 'special features' this bank offers.

- The regulations this bank faces.

- Any recent changes this bank has gone through.

Then consider the bank manager's request that you support the petition and provide a written response to that request.
