Friday, February 27th, 2009

In 2007, there were 3 bank failures. In 2008, there were 25 bank failures. So far in 2009, there have been 13 bank failures.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation expects bank failures will cost the insurance fund $65 billion through 2013.

In response, the FDIC is raising fees on banks, as well as, adding emergency fee to help collect 27 billion dollars this year.
