FDIC Shuts Seven More Banks at a Cost of Over $7 Billion
by Douglas McIntyre

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation closed seven more banks on Apr. 30, bringing the total to 64 for the year. The day was particularly expensive, costing the agency just over $7 billion. According to the FDIC website, the banks were Frontier Bank (Everett, Wash.), National Banks (Butler, Mo.), Champion Bank, (Creve Coeur, Mo.), CF Bancorp (Port Huron, Mich.), Westernbank Puerto Rico (Mayaquez, Puerto Rico), R-G Premier Bank of Puerto Rico (Hato Rey, Puerto Rico), and Eurobank (San Juan, Puerto Rico). Frontier Bank’s shuttering will be particularly expensive, costing the insurance fund that protects bank depositors $1.37 billion.

Tres de estos bancos quiebran en Puerto Rico. Otro, Frontier Bank le va a salir por un pico de más de mil trescientos millones de dólares al seguro de depósitos, aunque esto todo no es pérdida, pero come recursos. Sesenta y cuatro bancos quebrados en cuatro meses del año 2010, va peor que en 2009.

La prensa española quiere decir que allá todo va bien, vaya mentiras que nos meten para dejar a los españoles anestesiados.  Deberían regalar una botella de vino con cada periódico.

Pero allá no lo ven tan así, lo ven bastante oscuro

Tough times force US cities to consider going bankrupt
by Nicole Bullock

Council meetings in Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania, have debated issues ranging from snow removal and rubbish collection to a rise in dog fighting, but a meeting this week was particularly unusual. In a sign of the tough times, officials called in experts to discuss the pros and cons of going bankrupt. «There is no good option,» Dan Miller, Harrisburg city controller, told the city’s administration committee. Mr Miller and some members of the committee advocated exploring bankruptcy as a way to get out from under its debts.

More Than a Million in U.S. May Lose Even Emergency Jobless Benefits
by Brian Faler

Since the U.S. recession began in December 2007, Congress has extended the length of unemployment benefits for the jobless three times. Now, the lawmakers may have reached their limit. They are quietly drawing the line at 99 weeks of aid, a mark that hundreds of thousands of Americans have already reached. In coming months, the number of those who will receive their final government check is projected to top 1 million.

  • El mercado hipotecario socializado. Fannie y Freddie son empresas del estado que dan el 96% de las hipotecas, ya los bancos privados no conceden hipotecas.  ¡Y a España les dicen socialistas !  En España, en Reino Unido, en toda Europa los bancos privados son hipotecarios, no el Estado.

U.S. Role in Mortgage Market Grows Even Larger
by Nick Timiraos

The U.S. government’s massive share of the nation’s mortgage market grew even larger during the first quarter. Government-related entities backed 96.5% of all home loans during the first quarter, up from 90% in 2009, according to Inside Mortgage Finance. The increase was driven by a jump in the share of loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-owned housing-finance giants.

Obama Prods Economic Team to Stay
by Jonathan Weisman

President Barack Obama, trying to head off a staff exodus after the November elections, has been pressing members of his economic team to stay with his administration until the economy is on a stronger footing, Democratic officials said.

Mr. Obama’s effort is unusual. Most presidents fully expect members of their economic teams to leave after the first two years of their administrations, prompted by the grueling intensity of life in the White House and the allure of the more lucrative private sector.

Despite Mr. Obama’s efforts, some members of the team, such as White House Budget Director Peter Orszag and Council of Economic Advisers Chairwoman Christina Romer, are still eying the exits.

  • Y el petróleo subiendo.  A U$d 86,22 el barril de 159 litros, y subiendo.

El sistema funciona con deuda, si no hay crecimiento del PIB no puede aumentar la deuda ni se pueden pagar los intereses. Y no puede haber crecimiento del PIB con el petróleo rozando ya los 90 u$d/barril de 159 lts. Y se pone a más de 100 antes de fin de año.

Entiendan que el dinero es una abstracción, pero los seres vivos dependen de la Geología, y se acabó el petróleo barato. La economía es petróleo, no lo duden Uds y España no crecerá el PIB, no hay ni puede haber recuperación (apariencias cosméticas nada más), no bajará el paro, descenderá brutalmente el nivel de vida. Nada que ver con ZP ni con Obama, ni con cualquier otro capataz.
