Banks and the Economy: The FDIC Expects Bank Failures to Peak this YearDust Off Your Files: The FDIC Is Back in Town
By Laurence E. Platt et al., August 2008

The recent appointment of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) as conservator of IndyMac Bank and receiver of the First National Bank of Nevada and First Heritage Bank, N.A. (collectively, “FNBN”) has caused many lawyers to recall from storage their files on the role of the FDIC and the now defunct Resolution Trust Corporation (“RTC”) in the liquidation of thousands of failed banks and thrifts over 15 years ago.

FDIC and RTC were often a source of unmitigated pain to the failed institutions they liquidated and the counterparties to contracts that were in effect at the time [they] failed. At the same time, FDIC and RTC presented unsurpassed opportunities for those with cash to purchase loans and assets from their receiverships [reception].

Those who have servicing or other contracts with IndyMac and FNBN are experiencing (more…)

WAR IRAQ VS KWAITManaging the Crisis: The FDIC and RTC Experience
Chronological Overview: Chapter Fourteen—1991

[The] Bank Insurance Fund (BIF) dropped below zero to a negative $7 billion. On April 30, 1991, the FDIC issued a regulation raising the deposit insurance assessment rate from 19.5 cents to 23 cents per $100 in assessable deposits.

5. Business Advisory Council
Aligning business interests and government policy

The Business Advisory Council (1933-61)

Whereas the Foreign Policy Association-World Affairs Center is primarily interested in fostering the foreign policy desired by the CFR, and the Committee for Economic Development is primarily interested in formulating economic and other policies which, through governmental controls, will lead us into total socialism — another, smaller (but, in some ways, more powerful) organization has (or, until mid-1961, had) the primary responsibility of infiltrating government: of selecting men whom the CFR wants in particular jobs, and of formulating, inside the agencies of government, policies which the CFR wants. This small but mighty organization was the Business Advisory Council.

Daniel C. Roper, F. D. Roosevelt’s Secretary of Commerce, formed the Business Advisory Council on June 26, 1933. (more…)

Trade-Based Money Laundering - 2006Trade-Based Money Laundering

From FATF-GAFI [Excerpt]

There are three main methods by which criminal organisations and terrorist financiers move money for the purpose of disguising its origins and integrating it into the formal economy. The first is through the use of the financial system; the second involves the physical movement of money (e.g. through the use of cash couriers); and the third is through the physical movement of goods through the trade system.

The international trade system is clearly subject to a wide range of risks and vulnerabilities that can be exploited by criminal organisations and terrorist financiers. (more…)
