FDIC study determines most large American banks not ready for next financial crisis

On April 13, the FDIC issued a new report from a study they made regarding the ability of major U.S. banks to deal with a systematic financial collapse.  And in their findings, the FDIC is reporting that 5 of the 8 ‘too big to fail’ banks do not have feasible plans in place to stave off a crisis, and in fact are geared towards the expectation that the government and taxpayers will bail them out once again.
Despite the fact that the 2010 Banking Reform Act specifically placed bond and equity holders as the entities which would bail out a financial institution during the next crisis, major U.S. banks have summarily ignored the new laws and are sure that fear and panic will cause the government to give in and bail them out as they did eight years ago.
