Description:
Hearings before the Committee on Banking and Currency, House of Representatives, ninety-second Congress, first session, on:
H.R. 5700 (the Banking Reform Act of 1971): a bill to prohibit certain conflicts of interest and encourage competition in the banking industry and related fields to provide for restrictions and disclosures with respect to certain loans, to prohibit brokered deposits in banks and other financial institutions, to prohibit the use of giveaways in the solicitation of deposits, to permit full deposit insurance for government depositors, and for other purposes.
H.R. 3287: a bill to prohibit federally insured banks from making loans to provide for the purchase of bank stock, and for other purposes.
and H.R. 7440: a bill to clarify the authority of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board to regulate conflicts of interest in the operation of insured savings and loan associations, and for other purposes.

The Banking Reform Act of 1971 sought to enhance competition among financial institutions, reduce concentrations of economic power within the financial community, and eliminate certain serious conflict-of-interest situations occurring as a result of existing practices carried on by financial institutions.

These hearings took place from April 20 - May 4, 1971. Included are statements from such individuals as Arthur Burns, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; William Camp, Comptroller of the Currency; Preston Martin, Chairman of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board; Richard Smith, Commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission; and Frank Wille, Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

Go to Publication

Description:
In 1912, a special subcommittee was convened by the Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee, Arsene P. Pujo. Its purpose was to investigate the "money trust," a small group of Wall Street bankers that exerted powerful control over the nation's finances. The committee's majority report concluded that a group of financial leaders had abused the public trust to consolidate control over many industries. The Pujo Committee report created a climate of public opinion that lead to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914.

The hearings were conducted between May 16, 1912 and February 26, 1913. The transcript of the hearings was published in three volumes. It is presented in the original 29 parts with the index, a table of interlocking directorates of 18 financial institutions, and the majority/minority report of the committee.

Description:
This series of hearings, also known as the Pecora Commission hearings, was conducted by a subcommittee of the United States Senate Banking and Currency Committee between 1932 and 1934. The hearings investigated stock exchange practices and their effect on American commerce, the national banking system, and the government securities market. They also addressed issues of tax evasion and avoidance. The record of the hearings includes more than 12,000 printed pages with more than 1,000 exhibits received in evidence. Originally authorized by Senate Resolution 84 on March 2, 1932, the scope of the investigation was broadened with by Senate Resolution 56 on April 4, 1933 and Senate Resolution 97 on June 8, 1933. Prior to the appointment of Ferdinand Pecora on January 24, 1933, Claude Branch, William A. Gray and John Marrinan served as legal counsel for the early hearings. The transcripts were published in two series. The initial six parts covered the the work authorized by Resolution 84. The second 20 parts and final report document the expanded scope of the investigation after the passage of Resolutions 56 and 97.

The work of this committee set the stage for the Glass-Steagall legislation, the Securities Act of 1933, and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Parts 1-6, April 11-May 25, 1933, were digitized by Internet Archive.
