Amidst the chaos in the U.S. banking sector, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and owner of Twitter, has been critical of the country’s central bank. Musk insists that the U.S. Federal Reserve is operating with “way too much latency in their data,” and he insists that the central bank needs to drop the federal funds rate “immediately.”
Musk’s Criticism of the Federal Reserve’s Data Latency; Study Shows 186 U.S. Banks Suffer From Financial Risks
In the last week, three major U.S. banks collapsed, First Republic Bank was bailed out, and Credit Suisse received 50 billion Swiss francs from the Swiss National Bank. Just last week, the U.S. Federal Reserve lent the banks $164.8 billion to shore up liquidity. Despite all the bailouts and the expectation of the central bank injecting up to $2 trillion in liquidity after the creation of the Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP), the banking industry is still not out of the woods. A recently published study shows that 186 U.S. banking institutions are suffering from the same risks that caused Silicon Valley Bank’s failure.
