    Is there a yearly chart of cumulative bank failures by assets rather than # of banks. I;d predict that would show a different picture over the last few years. And would it include Countrywide, Wachovia and others that were eaten?

    Another graph that might be informative would be annual outlays, income and reserves for FDIC. But maybe things are a little to complicated (with FDIC guarantees etc.) to get meaningful insights out of that.

    So can we get an acknowledgement that this story is OVER. # of failures in May is the 2nd lowest month in 2+ years. Cost of failure also one of the lowest in 2+ years. Steady decline in everything.

    The TOTAL cost of the last 10 months of failures… is LESS than the large month in the mid crisis. So we are down about 90% on average on this issue.

    Here is the link to “est cost”:

    Thanks cognos. No doubt that we are down to a much more manageable level of cost to FDIC. As much as one may object to the immorality of it all, it is clear that a few years of banks robbing the small time savers and depositors has helped them get a better financial footing. No wonder they are fighting so hard to sabotage the consumer protection agency.
