the bottom and open Table 1-A.
a. Have banks’ return on assets been increasing or decreasing over the past few years?
b. Has the core capital been increasing, and how does it compare to the capital ratio
reported in Table 1 (Chapter 10) in the text?
c. How many institutions are currently reporting to the FDIC?
2. Table 1 on page 226 reports the balance sheet of all commercial banks based on aggregate data

reported by YOUR BANK. Go to your bank’s website (or visit the actual branch to ask their

YOUR BANK have more or less of its portfolio in loans than the average? What percentage of
assets does it hold in loans? Which type of loan is most common
