When Cam Fine and Barney Frank determined where the line should be drawn between Main Street and Wall Street Banks and other financial institutions, little did they know they were close to the Economy of Scale in U.S. Banking.

“The Economy of Scale has eluded economists since Adam Smith. In his ‘Wealth of Nations’ Adam Smith identified a savings is gained in the production of pins using four workers with division of labor instead of one,” notes Michael Moebs, Economist & CEO, of Moebs Services – an economic research firm.

“Between a rock and a hard place” accurately captures the position of today’s Fed. Increase interest rates and you have higher prices chasing fewer dollars, or inflation. Increase the Money Supply, which increases employment and output, but at a price regulators, investors, politicians and consumers won’t pay today.
