Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know the details of prudential regulation in Spain, I assume that the Bank of Spain is the sole/lead prudential regulator for the banking system.

Of course, in the US, with an undersized banking sector and oversized capital markets, just doing that for banks would not have sheltered the US from the current Panic, but it still would have reduced the exposure for banks as such.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
