Warnings Of A New Credit Crisis And The Potential For System Wide Bail-In Push

In that you are most probably correct. But all it took was 'one time' for a massive bailout on that fateful day back in 2008 and with the fear of God put into Congressmen to vote for it.

I personally don't believe when bail-ins come it will be piecemeal. It will come on a holiday similar to 1933 when they shut down the banks.

Gary -

I believe the 'secret' to being able to ditch the FDIC insurance for most depositors is through this scheme.

Banks announce they need to recapitalize and issue a bail-in, taking unsecured creditor monies first. In return they will issue those depositors 'equity swaps'.

Then the FDIC will tell the depositor that they have received 'in kind' recompense for their rehypothicated moneies. That's how I believe they will get away with not having to cover any upcoming claims on insurance.
