Silicon Valley Bank: how can we reconcile these claims?
- All deposits, not just the usual $250k, will be insured
- No taxpayer funds will be used.
- SVB is a failed bank
Is this basically a bankruptcy, but where deposits are prioritized over everything else?
Also wondering: why was the Federal Reserve part of the announcement?
What is the legal basis for adjusting the deposit insurance limit from $250k to $∞ after the fact, without new legislation?
