Experts Available: Does Too Big to Fail still exist under Dodd-Frank?

With the House Financial Services Committee holding a hearing on whether 'too big to fail' still exists under Dodd-Frank, AEI has a number of finance experts available for comment or to speak on background for this ongoing issue. 

Peter J. Wallison, a member of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission in 2009 and the Arthur F. Burns Fellow in Financial Policy Studies, writes that too many questions remain unanswered to break up the big banks, including:
•    1) Is 'Too Big to Fail' (TBTF) even real?
•    2) What Size Makes a Firm Not Too Big to Fail?
•    3) Are We Going to Break Up Nonbanks, Too?
•    4)  What Would It Mean to Break Up the Biggest Banks?
•    5) What's Wrong with Dodd-Frank?

Alex J. Pollock, a research fellow at AEI and a former president and CEO of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago, writes that by Mr. Jim Bullard's logic, we should also be breaking up the Federal Reserve.

Phillip Swagel, visiting fellow at AEI and former assistant secretary for economic policy at the Treasury, takes on the notion of TBTF.
