Let bad banks fail ...

FT.com / Comment / Opinion - Troubled banks must be allowed a way to fail:

"Non-viable institutions would be allowed to fail and be placed into a negotiated conservatorship or a bridge institution, with the bad assets liquidated while the remainder of the firm is operated under new management and re-privatised as soon as is feasible. This plan is similar to what was done in Sweden in the 1990s and in the US with the failure of Continental Illinois in the 1980s."

So says Dr. Thomas Hoenig, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.
