Interesting post, Bill. I have however my doubts about the long-term viability of being large. Including these large U.S.-banks.

Prices of commoditised products will keep on going down, so the money will have to come from somewhere. Most research shows by the way that by far the largest % of M&As have resulted in shareholder-value destruction.

Regarding creative destruction in banking, watch this funny one:
