You tell me which is more important.
17% of revenue --
Sounds important to me . . . .

What would the government's reaction be if there was a massive customer boycott? Would it be likely to give the bank even more stimulus?

Hopefully, government stimulus is an infrequent event, that will stop at some point. Ongoing retail revenue is . . . well, ongoing.

I still say, Boycott the Big Banks !
