In praise of banking at big-box stores
from The Wall Street Journal
Here's some good financial news for millions of Americans: The provision in Dodd-Frank that imposed a three-year moratorium on banks affiliated with nonfinancial businesses expired this week.

So could Home Depot and Berkshire Hathaway, both of which applied for a charter to offer banking services before Dodd-Frank took effect.
