William Tell and companies such as BBAR Inc.http://www.benboothe.com, represent the fight for local control, vs concentrated power that tends to draw assets, capital, and energy
out of local communities.
The pattern of concentrations of power throughout history give a pointed pattern that we should consider instructive.
Paul Volcker, former head of the Federal Reserve saw to it that the Financial Reform Act included provisions that could make incompetent "giant" banks spin off their assets to local communities that would give banking "hands on" management. If that happens, economic power and banking could return back to heartland America and create a resurgence of a diversified economy with greater stability.
William Tell became a symbol of opposition to concentrations of power, like Europe had in the 1300's through the 1890's.
Keeping power in the hands of the people, and diversified so that local communities "have a chance" is a constant battle. Perhaps we could use a Cross Bow and an apple again.
