"'The measuies passed by the last Congress have not been in effect very long, but it is not too early lo glance at the situation and sec whether anything more needs to bo done. "" '•John T. Fly mi recently wrote an extremely penetrating analysis of the whole stock market silunlion. In his final article, looking to the future, he: suggested certain steps that might be taken to prevent Wall Street from regaining its old dominance over our economic life. * • * To begin with, lie asserts thai our whole financial system needs recasting. He would have a national banking system, a complete divorce between savings and lending institutions, further restrictions on the aclivilies of brokers, • a revision of our corporation laws lo reijuire federal charters for all firms engaged in interstate commerce, and abolition of all holding companies. Second, he would have all such restrictions that deal directly with stock exchange activities written solidly into laws which the securities exchange commission would be directed to enforce. Under the present law the commission makes its own regulations on these subjects. This, says Mr. Flynn, pills the eom- • mission under direct pressure from Wall Street to adopt a "liberal" attitude, and m*V eventually result in nullification-of the people's will. In discussing any such measures, it is important, to keep clearly in mind the underlying purposes of this or any other financial reform program. The things we have learned .since October;of 1929 prove pretty clearly that our financial machinery got badly out of goai in the last decade. The machinery of finance, credit, and exchange exists .to make possible the functioning of a large and complex " industrial society. It became perverted. ; It grew^'to be an end in itself. '.
