Here's a look at what's going on in banking, business and finance:
- Wells Fargo sees an opportunity to grow its already-dominant mortgage business as other banks pull back, Bloomberg/Businessweek reports.
- The Wells Fargo stagecoach evokes mixed emotions in the city where Wachovia began, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
- Time asks: What's the point of protesting debit card fees?
- Wall Street is still a big draw for MBA grads, the Wall Street Journal reports. Financial industry hires for new grads hit a post-crisis high this year.
- Many households underreport the amount of credit card debt they have, the New York Times' Economix blog says.
- And this isn't necessarily finance, but interesting: NPR's Planet Money found a government memo from the Clinton administration outlining what would happen if the U.S. paid off its entire debt. At that point, the projection was that would happen in 2012.
