Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) — U.S. Representative Barney Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat and chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, talks with Bloomberg’s Peter Cook about President Barack Obama’s proposals to limit the size and trading activities of U.S. financial institutions as a way to reduce risk taking and prevent another financial crisis.
