Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, there's the phrase simply splayed, isn't it...

"tear down the archaic barrier between banking and broking,"  (We assume they mean brokering.)

Jeez, i'm not sure if there were any hiccups in letting Bank of America and 1st Local Sparkasse of Düsseldorf and Des Moines compete with Goldman Sachs and eTrade.  Guess it doesn't matter since they're all getting bailed out by the Feds of the world.  (The preceeding comment has been ruled simplistic, as it ignores the relative sanity of the ECB.)
