If there has been one constant in the banking industry since the financial crisis, it's that the big banks are getting bigger. The top 10 banks in America now have combined assets of about $9.72 trillion. To get a sense of the size of that number, consider that the entire U.S. economy produced $15.68 trillion in 2012, according to the Federal Reserve. In fact, it's impossible to get into the top 10 banks these days with less than $223 billion in assets. See which banks made it. (Source: SNL Financial)
