There been no bailouts (Fed and Central Bank interventions prior). It would not have been pretty. I'm all for Glass-Steagal.
Unfourtunately, the banks you reference are to big to fail.
Even if this were all to happen people could still run up credit cards on stupid shit and get in trouble. Wal Mart will still not pay more than $8 and hour. People in Florida, for example, will still be dependent on tourism and healthcare etc for jobs which pay lower wages.
