I think this is a pointless line of questioning. Wells Fargo's incentive is to provide loans they can make a return on, not protect the environment directly. They evaluate environmental risks but only to determine the viability of an investment. The organization that really had the power to prevent environmental harm is the agency that issued the building permit. They are supposed to establish standards to avoid these events. If the costs to meet these standards are too high Wells Fargo won't invest because it's not viable for them thereby preventing the harm. If the investment is still viable after meeting the standards then it gets funded. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez wants to blame the company for following their incentive when the lack of judiciousness in the government standards is what enabled the disaster. Business follow their incentives. Government (ideally) shapes the incentives to prevent externalities. She should be grilling the permit issuers and modifying the environmental standards that apparently were not strict enough.

The point she is trying to get across is, if you do risk assessment, and constantly see people who you do business with, and those services you provide to them is vital to the point that their action would not be possible without it, and those actions end up hurting others, then perhaps, either you are doing business with those entities under the guise of knowing their prospective damage to others, or you are just a greedy bastards who only care about the bottom line.

So moral of the story is, pass better regulation that would hold financial institutions responsible for the type of people/business they invest in. Oops, I believe they already do that, (SEC, FinCEN, BSA, OCC, FDIC, FRS, NCUA etc.) 🤯 Please Congress, spend more time regulating smaller business or intities who you wish to really hold accountable to the same standards! If I missed the point then I will admit that fact. I didn't like the Congress women's tone in this hearing.

It's simple, in politics there are no fist fights. You have to use language and slick questioning to get people to make mistakes, misspeak and make statements that could potentially self incriminate, defame, or tarnish themselves or who they represent. Plain speaking allows for easy lies to fly under the radar and doesn't allow viewers to see in all context how the person on trial might respond under pressure. This is why AOC and many other politicians have to resort to these strategic conversational tactics to pin the defense. You people think you're so smart calling career politicians stupid when you just show your inferiority in understanding what just played out.

For all the morons like AOC out there: banks lend money. That's their job, period. Not building pipelines or anything else for which they loan money. Her question about pipeline spill liability is analogous to asking if a bank who made a home loan should be liable if a plumber wrongly installed a toilet that flooded said house. What a freaking dumba$$. Her 15 minutes of fame are up.

GamerRadar but if you as a person get a investment/loan and make no money and go bankrupt and also have to declare that you don’t get excused from making payments to your loans (I.e. student loans or any company starter funds or loans in business) then you as a person have to pay it. Why is a bank special? It’s not. Do the work. Pay your shit. No excuses. You say you have a problem with millennials and student loans but knowingly invest in un-American and in humane treatment of people for a supposed business and pay day. You’re out of your mind. This is banks and big rich men literally buying America and enslaving people, going bankrupt and having financial trouble doing so and people validating this. There has been MULITPLE lawsuits against this companies abuse of American people, racism, sexism, and literal law breaking on their improper banking and credit system abuse for over 30 years.

No. A bank does an Environmental risk assement to evaluate past spills. It does nothing to predict future contamination. That's what environmental engineers and others do when the pipeline is built.

+Will Crozier They willfully invested in something that was well known to cause suffering and they are somehow immune from the consequences. However if I for instance willfully gave someone a get away car for a robbery, or gave them a gun they used in a murder, or in some other way gave them materials required to actively cause harm to another I would be held responsible. So why is a giant financial entity immune from such responsibility?
