Why is Glass-Steagall so politically popular and what does it really mean?

Why is Glass-Steagall so politically popular and what does it really mean? | U.S HISTORY SHACK : MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
Reinstating Glass-Steagall, the 1930s era signature financial regulation act, has achieved a rare feat, now included in both party’s platforms. How did this arcane, 80-year old law, suddenly become the trendy cure-all for our nation’s financial regulatory system?

Glass-Steagall separated the commercial and investment banking and the business of insurance from each other. Firms had to specialize in one of those areas and could not cross business lines. Separating business lines was a response to the factors that caused the Great Depression.
