HNewsWire: By Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Last September, speaking at a conference sponsored by the nonprofit watchdog, Better Markets, to examine if “too big to fail” banks had materially changed in the fifteen years since the 2008 financial collapse, Anat Admati, Professor of Finance and Economics at Stanford Graduate School of Business, offered her assessment of the U.S. banking system: “Corruption has become the system.” Today, Admati’s celebrated 2013 book, The Bankers’ New Clothes: What’s Wrong with Banking and What to Do about It, co-authored with German economist Martin Hellwig, is being released in an expanded new edition.

Jerome Powell Openly Admits That Banks Will Collapse This Year

By SRH, Earlier this week, in a Senate Banking Committee, the esteemed Fed Chair Jerome Powell reluctantly acknowledged that the United States is bound to confront a series of unavoidable banking collapses this year. However, he audaciously asserts that this forthcoming surge of calamities shall be within the realm of “manageable.” Another round of deceit from the Fed, as expected. The senator’s worries about the banking sector’s soundness and its exposure to commercial real estate were acknowledged by Powell. He verified that worried banks are receiving updates from the Federal Reserve, which is keeping a careful eye on the situation. Although Powell refrained from naming names or providing exact figures, he did say that additional banks, especially smaller ones with a greater reliance on commercial real estate, are likely to fail this year. The transition to remote employment has resulted…

Watchman Banks Are In Trouble: New York Community Bancorp Cut To ‘Junk’ By Moody’s 33% Of Deposits Uninsured,the Crash is Coming

By SRH, HNewsWire Reporting: Embattled regional bank New York Community Bancorp received another blow Tuesday evening when Moody’s Investors Service lowered its credit rating to junk status. Moody’s downgraded New York Community Bancorp due to “challenges” stemming from the lender’s unexpected loss in the commercial real estate market. The downgrade reduced the bank’s credit rating by two notches from its prior level, indicating a significant lack of faith in the bank’s capacity to repay its debt holders. “NYCB’s core historical commercial real estate lending and significant and unanticipated loss on its New York office and multifamily property could create potential confidence sensitivity,” according to the assessment released by Moody’s Investors Service. Following the downgrading, New York Community Bancorp shares fell 17% in after-hours trading on Tuesday evening. This loss comes on top of a 22% selloff in regular trading. Credit…
