4 Background Issues & History Purposes of the FDIC Protect small, uninformed savers. Prevent contagious bank runs, such as occurred in the early 1930s. h Bank runs are not always bad but contagious ones are very harmful. Until 1980, the FDIC worked great (there were very few bank failures and moral hazard did not seem to be a problem).

5 Background Issues & History The FDIC continued Failures accelerated in the 1980s – See Figure 19-1. In 1991: Borrowed $30 billion from Treasury and still generated a $7 billion deficit. FDIC Improvement Act 1991: Prompt corrective action rules forced regulators to take action quickly as bank conditions deteriorate and close banks promptly. h This worked up until the recent crisis. Big failures in 2008: IndyMac bank failure with estimated cost to the FDIC of over $10 billion. h 25 banks failed in 2008. h 140 failed in 2009. h 139 failed in 2010 as of October 22.

It was in good shape till the end of 1970s. h From 1979-1982, the increase in interest rates hurt S&Ls who borrowed short and lent long at fixed rates. h Fed raised rates to fight inflation but ended up killing the S&L industry. High levels of failed thrifts between 1980-88 generated losses of $42.3 billion. h FSLIC estimated net worth negative. Policy of capital forbearance. h Regulators did not promptly close or take action against S&Ls with low or negative capital.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
