"The banks today are focused on making regulators happy instead of going out and making loans," Allison said. "It is a big mistake to believe that regulators know the proper level of risk. They are tightening standards way too much and it is hurting the normal growth rate of the economy."
Chances: Allison is a bit of a wild card, but if he clicks with Trump, his free-market and financial services credentials will make him a popular choice among bankers and Republicans alike.
Chances: It's likely that Trump is looking at Atkins for a different role than Treasury.
Chances: Good. He is widely considered to be near the top of Trump's short list.
Chances: Unclear. Mnuchin's name was the first to surface for the job, and he was reportedly recommended by Trump's transition team. That said, if Trump were inclined to give him the post, it's not clear why there'd be a delay in naming him or a search for other contenders.
Chances: Unlikely. Sources indicate that Dimon truly doesn't want the job. After his lack of interest became clear, some sources in Trump's transition team have reportedly said he had never been a contender, though that claim should be taken with a grain of salt.
Chances: Unlikely. Ross will likely be nominated as head of Commerce.
