FDIC - Bank United Failure

The FDIC estimates that the cost to its Deposit Insurance Fund will be $4.9 Billion.

"Bank United, FSB had assets of $12.80 billion and deposits of $8.6 billion as of May 2, 2009. The new BankUnited will assume $12.7 billion in assets and $8.3 billion in nonbrokered deposits. The FDIC and BankUnited entered into a loss-share transaction and will share in the losses on approximately $10.7 billion in assets covered under the agreement."

The buyers that are "rescuing" the bank?

WL Ross & Co. LLC; Carlyle Investment Management L.L.C.; Blackstone Capital Partners V L.P.; et al.

This is a big one. A huge hit for the FDIC and the taxpayer.  A potential windfall for the PEG Insiders.

I read about yet another bank closure yesterday. I hope Davos has got it covered. Did anyone log the particulars or the count thus far?

This economy crisis is getting pretty bad now, the usage of ecomonic checks might help our economy at least a bit more as high tax payers buy more products
