Breaking news this AM caught my eye: 4 banks failed - info released Friday. I went to the FDIC page and found more.
Talk in many circles is that the dollar is devaluing (buy gold) and that by summer the dollar may be well close to dead if not totally worthless. In other circles people seem oblivious to the what is happening other than the CPI (consumer price index) raises every month and gas prices are killing them - raising the price per gallon almost daily.
This is just burning me up that smaller banks are failing while larger banks that have harmed the country with foreclosure fraud, mortgage fruad, toxic loan and greed are bailed out and left standing... Below is partial list from the FDIC page. you can find more information at FDIC.gov.
