Largest global banks to get easier treatment because they complained

Talk about living the life of Riley. All the rest of us got for this recession was, well, a recession. Must be nice to completely own the governments of the industrialized world.

The world’s major banks are likely to get an extra capital charge in the 2 percent or 2.5 percent range, rather than the 3 percent that has been widely reported, according to officials familiar with the discussions.

Officials, who asked not to be named, commented after global banking regulators met this week in Frankfurt.
