Shenandoah: Let The World Wide Bank Runs Begin - First Up, South Korea


Go and read.

More local Asian coverage here and here.

And you do remember that as of their latest Quarterly Banking Profile for the period ending September 20, 2010, the FDIC's deposit insurance fund had an unaudited $8.0 billion negative balance:

The Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) balance increased by $7.2 billion during the third quarter to -$8.0 billion (unaudited), the third consecutive quarterly increase following seven quarters of decline. Assessment income of $3.6 billion and a $3.8 billion negative provision for insurance losses were the primary contributors to the improvement in the DIF balance. Interest earnings, combined with unrealized gains on available-for-sale securities and other net revenue, boosted the balance by another $0.3 billion. Operating expenses reduced the balance by $0.4 billion. 

Note especially JohnGaltFLA's checklist.

You ready?

As Taylor said, ready as I'll ever be. But I'm not stopping. More foodstuffs & other durable goods.
