Yes, but the main issue is that higher interest rates are forcing institutions like SIVB to reprice their investments to market. SIVB is holding paper of companies they lend money to. Those companies can't borrow to refinance at low rates and are showing declining valuations and maybe are going to go bust. That's was the essence of what Danielle DiMartino was talking about.

 

If Powell doesn't take the rates lower, many Private Equity firms will show big losses.

If Powell Lowers the rates prematurely, 300 million Americans are losing to inflation compared to their wage increases. Keep in mind 7% inflation requires to spend after-tax money. Wage or pension increases are pre-tax money. a 5% raise is actually only 4.25% raise after paying taxes. But your grocery bill higher by 7% requires you to spend after tax money. You have to spend 8.05% in 15% tax bracket to pay 7% more.

April 2, 2007? It indeed was nothing to worry about, yet

New Century Financial didn't go bankrupt becasue of homeowners' defaults in 2007. It went bankrupt becasue of fraud. It's was the same for Silvergate crypto bank: money laundering scam. It's going to be the same for SVB. They were lending out money and holding what----I bet it's something as valuable as tokens.

 

It's not their inability to mange interest rate risk. They teach that in Banking 100.
