GRAZIADIO IN THE NEWS
Is the economy safe from the past mistakes and current practices of the global banking system?
Dr. John Paglia
JP Morgan’s $13 billion settlement with the U.S. Justice Department is the latest sign that global regulators have raised the stakes to clean up the financial services industry. If we are to truly prevent large financial firms from posing a systemic threat to global economies, the industry needs to step up and institute significant self-imposed reforms, writes the Graziadio School’s Professor John Paglia on the website for publisher American Banker. “To regain credibility, business leaders need to agree upon and stand by some uniform standards,” he says.
To get there, Dr. Paglia suggests the follow things need to happen.
- Large banks must get serious about defining “too big to fail.”
- Senior-level executives need to hold each other publicly accountable
- Industry executives need to re-teach ethics training among senior-level executives and within the rank-and-file
