When asked about remarks he had made on economic policy, Ben Carson was wholly unable to offer a rational thought on banking and the concept of “too big to fail.”

“If Bank of America right now was about to fail,” asked a reporter for MSNBC, “would you be for bailing it out for government intervention?”

“My answer is, it’s not an ‘A’ or a ‘B’. It’s not let it fail or bail it out. There’s another option, option ‘C’,” said Carson. “There’s another tier of banks right beneath that one that we can allow people who are in that system to move to if they are going to fail.”
