Occupy Wall Street supporter and Daily Beast reporter Gary Rivlin asks the question, if protesters want to target a single big bank, which one should they choose? The decision, he claims, wouldn’t be easy, given the bad behavior of the country’s four largest — Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo, along with perennial target Goldman Sachs. Among the deadliest sins committed by these corporations? JPMorgan Chase evicted 54 military families out of their homes; Goldman Sachs helped Greece mask the truth about its finances, contributing to the European financial crisis; and Bank of America paid $137 million to settle government claims that it rigged the municipal-bond market.
