Banks in the US are appealing for more support
A group of medium-sized banks in the US is appealing to the authorities to extend the deposit guarantees, reports TT.
In a letter to, among others, Finance Minister Janet Yellen, the financial authority FDIC and the central bank (Federal Reserve), they write that the guarantee must be extended to apply for two years.
The recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank has led to a flood of money from the nation’s smaller and mid-sized banks to the big giants, which are deemed too big to fail.
Extended deposit guarantees would stop this, according to the banks.
If another bank is drawn into the crisis, the money flight would be even greater, they warn.
The central bank announced this week that together with the US authorities, it is entering into deposit guarantees so that vulnerable customers are not affected in the banking crash.

Haven’t had any problems accessing Telia’s website. However, the webmail does not work. Did you say anything about the “lag” how long you thought it might be?
Hi Kerstin! Unfortunately, we didn’t get any further details on how long it can lag behind, but the error should have been found and resolved.
The French hold large demonstrations when they raised the retirement age from 62 to 64. In Sweden, the government raises every year and we Swedes bow and bow and never say no…. Am really worried about Sweden’s future.
Never learn to experience retirement age until it’s time for me (30 now).. Not worth having a discussion about this?
Hi Martina! The French have a different tradition of protesting than we have here in Sweden, it can be stated. It is absolutely worth discussing, as are other political decisions that are made. If the pension system were to be scrapped completely, there would probably be reactions here as well.
