    Investment banks are larger than commercial banks. Due to there derivatives connections. Investment banks are like bookies they hold the paper of the bet and make money on the spread, but if one goes bust the other side cant be paid.

    Therefore they cant be allowed to fail.

    What a nice business to be in !
