Problem Bank List – 985 Banks and $432 Billion – Have We Recovered Yet?

April 19, 2011

“The Calculated Risk Blog has listed another problem bank list and surprisingly, the number of failing banks has increased to 985 in the new list.

However, the surprising and depressing fact for the economy is that even after two years of global recessionary jolts, the failing banks are increasing in number at a gradual speed. This is hinting towards an underlying problem related to the fund management and monetary flow in the country.
Sooner or later, these failing banks would be taken over by the FDIC or the Federal government or will be liquidated – but for the economy, it would not be the best thing to happen. It is high time that the Obama administration steps up and establishes a strong monitoring system in place to eradicate the bad practices followed by the banks.”
