The Public-Utility Function

There are some comments of note by Michael Lewitt on the financial system in this Barron's article:

Among other things, he says that the financial system and its public-utility function has not been favored enough.

He argues for a balance more in favor of that function.

The reason? For society and our economy, capital is the lifeblood.

I'm realistic about whether the most logical financial system changes will happen.

Entrenched interests will, understandably, resist reigning in some of their speculative but highly profitable activities.


This site does not provide investing recommendations as that comes down to individual circumstances. Instead, it is for generalized informational, educational, and entertainment purposes. Visitors should always do their own research and consult, as needed, with a financial adviser that's familiar with the individual circumstances before making any investment decisions. Bottom line: The opinions found here should never be considered specific individualized investment advice and never a recommendation to buy or sell anything.
