Giants of Wall Street

Visual note from the American Bankers Association protests (1, 2) in Chicago:

The ginormous name tags on JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon and Wells Fargo’s John Stumpf (or Dimon and B of A’s Ken Lewis here) are not there, at this point, to inform protestors who they are. They are there to emphasize how much Wall Street movers-and-shakers have protected and profited from their anonymity.
