Arianna joined Reuters's Jim Pethokoukis to discuss financial reform on The Dylan Ratigan Show Monday.

She called for Americans to enact their own kind of financial reform by moving their money from big banks to small banks. While the White House is pledging new financial reforms, Americans can make some of their own. Arianna:

"There's a lot we can do. I think finally people are realizing that it is citizens who have to do it. That it's not going to happen in Washington. That basically... this is really a change in rhetoric, not a change in policy and that as Sen. Dick Durbin said, the banks own this place and... because nothing is happening to make them smaller through legislation, we can make them smaller by moving our money out of the banks that are too big to fail."
