The TCB Weekly News Roundup, ending 19 February 2023

All systemic risks. Circle depegged hard as a result of SVB’s issues. Signature bank was taken down in a politicized more, we found out Credit Suisse’s spreadsheet is garbage, and Caitlin Long has a few good words on how higher reserve requirements would fix many issues.

If banks were better capitalized, there would be more confidence (and literally more reserve buffer) and it would take some truly bad risk judgement for a bank to go under.

Anyway, know your counter party risks.

Enjoy and be well, Everyone.
