It’s easy to miss things when watching long, crowded presidential debates like the CNBC event on Wednesday night. So it can be good to go back to the transcript the next morning to verify one’s recollections.
I looked for the discussion of how to regulate the financial sector that I must have somehow missed. I searched for “Too big to fail” and turned up one fleeting reference by Ben Carson.
