Two whys on bank regulations

How can I, as an ordinary citizen, obtain a decent return on my savings when investing in safe securities, having to compete with banks who can leverage their equity more that 60 to 1 when they do so?

How can I, as an ordinary small businesses or entrepreneur, get a decent interest rate on my bank loans, when banks can leverage their equity so much more when lending to those officially perceived as not-risky? 

It is so unfair! Who are these bank regulators? Who invested them with so much power?
