I poorly phrased my first post, so I thought I'd try to redo it.

Nationalizing the banks is not the answer. Credit Unions fill the local use case quite well and I would hate to see them go.
Breaking up the horizontal monopolies is required (I.E. separate different kinds of banks.). Other than that however there's no simple solutions. Money will always gravitate towards those who have it and banks have a lot of it.

I see that the money could be moving towards the local credit unions, at least on a personal level. I don't think many large companies are moving their money, but with the recent movement towards credit unions and the reports that a large number of people and some small businesses are doing so, that could be a good sign.
