Banking During the Revolution

Banking during the revolution was really only for the extremely rich or for the businesses.  Everyone else who simply worked to keep a roof over their heads and some food on the tables didn't have enough money to bank and couldn't keep it long enough to save anything either.  The banking system was being taken over by all of these wealthy men and companies and therefore being easily corrupted by them as well.  Luckily for the banks as well as the people, the Progressive Movement began noticing how these monopolies were taking over and making the bank bend for them and the Progressive party demanded more regulations and sanctions.  Slowly but surely towards the end of the industrial revolution we would see the banks turn around.
