Comments on: How to replenish the FDIC’s coffers http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/09/22/how-to-replenish-the-fdics-coffers/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: frankl http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/09/22/how-to-replenish-the-fdics-coffers/comment-page-1/#comment-7034 Tue, 22 Sep 2009 20:28:51 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/09/22/how-to-replenish-the-fdics-coffers/#comment-7034 this also does not help monetary velocity one whit, for banks to be lending the FDIC fund that insures failing banks

i also find it ironic in that the FDIC is (i suspect) having a harder and harder time finding banks willing to takeover failing banks, so they ask if all the banks are willing to lend monies for the same purpose (although ofcourse, such lending is TO the govt, not to the failing banks)

interesting times

Couldn’t it be done in a way that riskier banks — like Citi, Wells, BofA, etc. bear a higher proportion of the increased premiums?

They all are cooking the books still as the law chooses to allow until next year.

Oh wait, until they disclose their loses like the fed who can trust ’em. Not me…
