Marketplace Scratch Pad

Morning Reading

Scott Jagow Oct 26, 2009

Good morning. Hope you had a good weekend. Short list this morning:

The administration’s plan for TBTF (New York Times)

The measure would make it easier for the government to seize control of troubled financial institutions, throw out management, wipe out the shareholders and change the terms of existing loans held by the institution…

The White House plan as outlined so far would already make it much more costly to be a large financial company whose failure would put the financial system and the economy at risk. It would force such institutions to hold more money in reserve and make it harder for them to borrow too heavily against their assets.
