The Secret FDIC Rule That Puts Your Savings At Risk

“April 8, 2013

What happened in Cyprus isn’t a “one off” event.

The financial media and elite have been trying to convince the world that Cyprus was a unique situation… a “one time” deal… and that our money is safe in the banks.

This is untrue.

Spain, Canada, and New Zealand have already proposed similar measures through which individuals’ SAVINGS accounts would be used to prop up the banks during times of Crisis.

It’s called a “bail-in,” but really it’s “THEFT” plain and simple. The banks made the terrible mistakes that rendered them insolvent. They (the banks) should simply fail. But instead of failing, the regulators want to keep the banks in business… using YOUR money.

Why is this?

Two reasons:

1)   The regulators don’t have the money to actually insure deposits that they claim.

2)   Politicians realize that people are fed up with the public funding bank bailouts… so they’re targeting individual savers in the banks that are in trouble.

It’s a simple question of math regarding #1. Banking deposits are in the trillions of Dollars and most deposit insurance entities only have a few billion Dollars in funds. Obviously, if a large bank were to fail under these circumstances there wouldn’t be the funds to cover deposits…

Regarding #2, politicians have begun to realize that the public simply won’t stomach another Federal bailout of the banks. So instead of getting everyone and their children to chip in by using the public’s funds… they’re going after the deposits of a select few people who have their funds IN the troubled bank.

Their thinking is that if you can’t steal a little from everyone, you might as well try to steal a lot from a few people.

Could this happen in the US?

You better believe it. In fact, the FDIC has already put forth a proposal to do EXACTLY this in the event of a Crisis.

Just four months ago, the FDIC drafted a formal strategy in which it suggested that during the next Crisis, it can…

1)   Decide WHAT banks are systemically important.

2)   Take control of any “systemically important” bank that it deems at risk of default.

3)   Once in control of the bank, YOUR savings deposits can be “written down” in value (meaning you LOSE money you thought was yours) as part of the bank bailout.

Less than 99% of Americans realize this is the case, but the legislation allowing this is already IN PLACE and the FDIC has already written out the rules for what will happen…..”

        Crappy content from a crappy source. I’ve read the FDIC paper. It has nothing at all to do with FDIC insured deposits.

        The point of the paper is that a new process is needed to avoid the need for massive injections of public funds into financial institutions to maintain the stability of the financial sector and the overall economy.

        The massive injections of public funds were needed because the bankruptcy system couldn’t handle the failures with enough speed and flexibility to maintain stability and the FDIC can take over and sort out only FDIC-insured depository institutions.

        The FDIC paper addresses how to quickly sort out impending failures of large, international financial institutions without relying on taxpayers to step in to absorb losses that should be borne by equity holders and creditors.

        This plan is something we need, not evidence of a nefarious plan to steal your insured deposits.

        I appreciate that you stroll throughout the internet to look for info that might be useful to iBC readers. I just wish that you’d scrape the dog shit off your shoes at end of your stroll instead of bringing it in here and posting it.
