New York Fed Has Allowed Dangerous Wall Street Banks to Have Lower Loan Loss Reserves than at time of 2008 Crash

The New York Fed supervises four of the most dangerous banks in America: Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. That opinion is not just ours but is documented by data from federal agencies. All four of these banks own federally-insured commercial banks that are backstopped by the U.S. taxpayer while also gambling in the stock market through their own Dark Pools and in trillions of dollars of derivatives.

All four of these banks received tens of billions of dollars in bailout money during the 2007-2010 financial crash, which was brought on by their greed and corrupt activities in the derivatives and subprime market. Citigroup’s losses were of such magnitude that it became insolvent, turned into a 99 cent stock, and yet secretly received the largest bailout in global banking history from the same regulator who had allowed it to become a derivatives fireworks factory and blow up: the New York Fed.

Using data and graphing capability from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, we compiled the above chart. It shows that as of the first quarter of 2008, heading into the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the loan loss reserves to total loans at all U.S. banks stood at 1.55 percent versus those regulated by the New York Fed at 1.41 percent. That’s not too bad a disparity. Clearly, however, since all of the banks supervised by the New York Fed had to be propped up, those reserves were inadequate.

Now look at where the banking system of the United States stands today. As of the fourth quarter of 2019, all banks had loan loss reserves to total loans of 1.15 percent versus banks supervised by the New York Fed – some of the most dangerous banks in America – had a preposterous 0.82 percent loan loss reserve.
