Black Banks and the Bailout

Some worry more regulation may increase costs, competition

Verdier says.

-For banks who held investments in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred stock became losses when the government took over these giants, capital losses from these investments may be deducted from ordinary income; and if a bank has dropped to a lower capital level, the Treasury can inject capital into the institution. The ICBA estimates nearly 22% of community banks made these investments, losing $5 billion.

None of the three B.E. 100s banks included in this article held preferred shares of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

    Hi webmaster!

  • Paul James

    Did you remove the search field from this site?

    I’m searching for Investors for a product I’m seeking to bring to market. I have a development company and potential manufacturer, and I need a small funds infusion to cover the developmental costs.

    I’m on a very short time-line as they’re poised to go forward with the completion of the product now.
    I however need to meet my portion of the expenses.

    Do you have anyone with whom I may speak o this matter?

    Thank you very much.
