To Andrew Jackson, banks “represented the opposite of hard work and honorable wealth creation”. He theoretically saved the country from what could have been unstoppable corruption and deceit. Despite all the citizens of America wanting the national bank and the stabilizing the of economy, Andrew Jackson got rid of it to protect the national government from being controlled by the bank, but rather, sent the U.S. economy down into a recession. The bank was privately owned, where “Nicholas Biddle, the wealthy president of the Second Bank of the United States, held in his hands the power to control the financial future of virtually every American”. Also, “[M]any of the banks shareholders were not Americans”.
Kant says that people in business should act out of duty alone, not self-interest or desire to earn huge amounts of money. For example motivating bankers through huge bonuses would be wrong. Kant would also apply the categorical imperative, to derive the duty of a businessman. However, whether Kantian ethics is the best approach in comparison to theories such as utilitarianism is debatable. One issue surrounding business is the relationship of the business to the consumers.
Let’s understand the elements of a valid contract, and discuss how consumers and banks each have a duty of good faith and fair dealing in the banking relationship. Let’s also compare and contrast the differences between intentional and negligent tort actions. I’ll discuss the tort action of “Interference with Contractual Relations and Participating in a Breach of Fiduciary duty” and, if the bank I’ve chosen were to behave as JP Morgan did, would I be able to prevail in such a tort action.

Discuss how administrative agencies like the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) take action in order to be effective in preventing high-risk gambles in securities / banking, a foundation of the economy.
These same individuals trusted and respected Bernard Madoff and yet he showed less than the mutual respect a professional investor should show toward his clients. Family members were not immune to his scheme. In fact, other family members were encouraged to invest and also bring in new investors into the fold of his deliberate hoax of profiting off of the rich and unassuming. Madoff showed that he lacked care and empathy for his clients, clearly a pure dereliction of duty, to provide the best information and protect investor’s financial investments.

Personally, I think this act has many points to argue about. First, to me the act will not help preventing futures recession but it does help keeping things clearly based on all the regulations that the act provides.

According to John B Taylor “Federal Reserve had the power to avoid the monetary excesses that accelerated the housing boom that went bust in 2007.
He felt the only way to make the new government successful is to cater to the wealthy citizens, so they would feel like they had a vested interest in the prosperity of the country. This is how the financial system came into play. The United States was in a lot of debt, not really our debt.
