    Hello Brian
    Three quick thoughts on your excellent presentation on the future of Banking
    1. People really need to have a well developed contingency for an exit from the euro, or some catastrophic default. You discuss what in reality is a possible best case scenario. i.e. survival.
    2. Looking to the East for expanding business if perilous as long as negligence with regard to human rights persists. We cannot just ignore this, because it is a variable that ‘will’ inevitably change drastically.
    3. Cooperative banking is a way of the future. S&L was specific ‘frauds’ not a conceptual flaw. And never again should a Bank be bigger than the rest of the economy put together. More community involvement in all aspects of life should be a goal always.
