Economists all over the United States have agreed that Senator Bernie Sanders’ plan to break up the big banks is a good one – including noted economist and former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich.

“In my view, [Hillary is] the most qualified candidate for president of the political system we now have. But Bernie Sanders is the most qualified candidate to create the political system we should have, because he’s leading a political movement for change.”

These same economists agree that Hillary’s policies won’t go after big banks, instead continuing the status quo.
