    I like to see what the ill-informed sheep are talking about. It really doesn't disappoint...reading the extremist comments is pure comedy...

    A machine couldn't post what you post...they are much more intelligent than that.

    Sick burn, dude.

    Being called an ill-informed sheep by an ill-informed sheep isn't really more than a nuisance, but you're embarrassing yourself every time you do it. Oh well, you'll never know any better, so keep reciting doctrine, I guess.

    The banking crisis: more fallout from failed Democrat COVID policies. Who could've guessed that foolishly adding about 40% of GDP by pulling funny money out of the air would have negative consequences? And not a single life was saved.

    Banking crisis: 5 pieces of financial jargon, explained

    Mar 16, 2023

    In March 2023, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) in the United States collapsed suddenly. The failure of the California-based lender marked the largest bank failure since the 2008 financial crisis and sent shockwaves across global financial markets. US regional banks came under particularly intense pressure as concern grew among customers and investors about the financial health of other institutions.

    Here is some useful financial jargon that can help explain the crisis.

    Bank run


    A bank run entails too many customers of a bank attempting to withdraw their money at the same time. This usually happens if customers believe their bank is about to fail.

    A bank run can turn a fear of insolvency into the real thing since banks typically do not hold enough cash to cover all their clients’ deposits.

    Bank runs have played a major role in financial crises. During the Great Depression, for instance, thousands of US banks failed in part due to bank runs. “Loss of confidence caused anxious depositors to create ‘runs’ on banks as they tried to withdraw their money before the banks collapsed,” a US government archive notes.

    More recently, SVB's collapse was fueld by a bank run.

    Financial contagion


    Financial contagion occurs when a failure in one institution ripples through a sector.

    Contagion often occurs during periods of intense financial unrest and can happen at a regional, national and international level. Moreover, since economic markets are heavily interdependent today, financial contagion can pose a particularly significant threat.

    The collapse of SVB sparked fears of contagion as concern grew among investors and customers about the stability of their banks. The anxiety was especially acute for smaller banks.



    Credit risk


    Credit risk is the risk that a borrower will default on their loan.

    Banks attempt to lower their credit risk in many ways. Mitigation strategies include taking steps to ensure borrowers are trustworthy and that loans are structured in ways that limit potential losses.

    Recent interest rate hikes, however, have made borrowing more expensive, which makes it harder for banks to finance themselves and reduces the value of their existing loans. The fallout from SVB’s collapse has increased credit riskaround the world as investors feared further failures in corporate debt markets.Hedging

    Hedging is a financial strategy that investors and banks use to limit financial risks.

    Hedging entails balancing investments to make sure that potential losses are offset by gains elsewhere. A specific investment trade aimed at lowering risk is often referred to as a hedge.

    Maintaining a diversified investment portfolio is also a form of hedging as it mitigates total potential losses if there is a downturn in a single economic se

    Moral hazard


    A moral hazard in economics refers to a situation where a bank or investor has an incentive to increase financial risks because they are insulated somehow from the potential consequences of the risk.

    Many economists maintain that moral hazards in financial markets increase the risk of harmful economic activity. On the other hand, maintaining incentives for limiting financial risk could help markets avoid excessive and reckless risk-taking, experts say.

    As Wall Street reels from the swift demise of Silicon Valley Bank — the biggest American bank failure since the 2008 financial meltdown — some social media users are honing in on a single culprit: its socially aware, or “woke,” agenda. But the Santa Clara-based institution’s professed commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, or DEI, wasn’t a driver of the bank’s collapse, say banking and financial experts. Its poor investment strategies and a customer base prone to make devastating bank runs were.

    Here’s a closer look at the facts.


    CLAIM: Silicon Valley Bank failed because it focused on “woke” policies such as diversity, equity and inclusion.


    THE FACTS: The nation’s 16th largest bank collapsed because of poor investment and risk strategies that left the bank with insufficient cash to weather a mass withdrawal of assets from its largely tech sector customers, who have been particularly hard hit in the current economy, financial and banking experts explain.

    I’m sure record inflation under Sleepy had nothing to do with it as well. When in doubt blame Trump. It worked for Obama, “Bbbbbbbush”.

    Re inflation I’m beginning to believe it’s not an interest rate problem (steelreserve was right in an earlier post) but a money printing problem. Reduce the money supply by making the banks keep more in reserve and inflation can be controlled. The interest rate raising is only crushing the consumer (us). Inflation will keep on raging while they keep printing money.
