How is the federal government responding to the failure of Silicon Valley Bank?

  1. Summary
    Last Friday Silicon Valley Bank, a major lender among tech start-ups, became the largest bank to collapse since the 2008 financial crisis. Following that, New York's Signature Bank was closed as it showed signs of failure. On Sunday federal regulators said they had resolved to guarantee all borrowers for both banks access to their deposits.

    The Biden administration said depositors would be able to access their funds even past the $250,000 usually insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. About 89% of the bank's deposits are not covered by the FDIC. Officials said taxpayers would not bear the costs, as the Deposit Insurance Fund has sufficient funds, and insisted that there would not be a bailout of the bank.

    It remains unclear how long it will take before some bigger clients will be able to fully access their deposits. Experts told the Associated Press they do not expect the failure to spread to the overall banking system, and that the issue appears limited to the tech sector.

Should the top 0.1% be taxed on their overall wealth?

528 votes, 77 comments

Context: President Biden proposes federal budget that includes a "billionaire's tax" that counts unsold assets as income.


Yes - Let's look at this rationally, without the emotional fear that "they're coming for my money." 1st, The 25% tax would not physically impact the person's being taxed. It's numbers on a page. 2nd most of that wealth is out of circulation, which is bad for the economy. 3rd most of that wealth was accrued due to windfall. It wasn't earned. 99% of our population will benefit from the recirculation of that $.

No - Unrealized wealth (e.g. unsold stock) should not be taxed. There is no telling what that wealth wi...

Unsure - The top .1% can afford it, but most of them are far more attached to their money than are most of the rest ...
