FDIC Says It Can Handle Failure of Giant Bank

"A top U.S. banking regulator said his agency could handle the failures of large, complex banks including J.P. Morgan Chase JPM -1.32% & Co., the nation's largest bank by assets, if they faltered and presented a risk to the broad financial system."

Annie's take:

For those of us who have direct experience of the FDIC's ability to handle the failure of a large bank, it's not at all clear that the business process management the FDIC can apply with smaller or regional banks will work with a large one, without large impacts to taxpayers.
