The Dow, the Banks and the State of the Economy

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Yesterday the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above the symbolic threshold of 10,000.

Building Confidence Via Stress Tests

Friday, May 08, 2009

The Federal Reserve yesterday released the long-awaited results of the “stress tests”. The tests found that ten of the nation's 19 largest banks need a total of about $75 billion in new capital to withstand losses if the recession worsened. The banks in trouble will have until June 8 to come up with a plan and have it approved. While the verdict was far more upbeat than many in the industry had feared when the tests were first announced in February, will the results help build the confidence they're meant to? Edmund Andrews, New York Times economics reporter, joins The Takeaway to discuss.
