Bank Bailouts


Plain and simple, it was a bailout.


One sentence stands out in the last two days of banking hearings:


"๐™๐™๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ฃ ๐™ก๐™–๐™ง๐™œ๐™š๐™จ๐™ฉ ๐™™๐™š๐™ฅ๐™ค๐™จ๐™ž๐™ฉ ๐™–๐™˜๐™˜๐™ค๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™จ ๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™Ž๐™‘๐˜ฝ ๐™๐™š๐™ก๐™™ $๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฏ.๐Ÿฏ ๐˜ฝ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ, ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™–๐™œ๐™œ๐™ง๐™š๐™œ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š"


This sentence is in Martin Gruenberg FDIC Chairman's written testimony.


It screams bailout.


His testimony also revealed the estimated cost of SVB in total is $20 billion.

Maybe it will be revealed in one of the many agency reports that will follow this debacle. It appears there are at least five in the works:


โ€ข Fed Report of SVB failure of Supervision

โ€ข FED Inspector General Review

โ€ข GAO Review of the FED

โ€ข FDIC Deposit Insurance Recommendations

โ€ข FDIC Review of its Supervision


I discuss this and more in today's episode of With Flying Colors, which you can find on any podcast app.
