When Wall Street collapsed last fall with the demise of Lehman Brothers, Morgan Stanley survived, but it wouldn't be the same. It convinced the Federal Reserve to allow it to become a different kind of bank, using deposits rather than extreme leverage to undertake its business. Oh, and $10 billion from the Treasury's TARP bailout fund helped too.

Now it's got the government to answer too - and also a very full plate. Chiefly there's a joint venture with Citi to acquire its Smith Barney brokerage business, and getting the rest of its banking house in order. - M.C.
