“Credit is the lifeblood of housing,” said Eric Belsky while he was still with Harvard’s Joint Center on Housing Studies (JCHS). Several are concerned that credit markets may be in the early stages of the problematic jolt experienced during the 2008 housing/financial crisis. Others assert that this time and scenario is different than what happened circa 2008. That noted, under the cover of the 2008 housing/finance crisis, there is apparent evidence-based allegations that Tim Williams with 21st Mortgage Corporation, a sister brand to Clayton Homes with both MHI member brands owned by Berkshire Hathaway (BRK), used that crisis to rattle, disrupt, shutter many and consolidate scores of independents. Restated, this current crisis may become an opportunity for consolidators, so it ought to be an apt time to wave the red flag in a manner that may help avoid what’s occurred once before.

One may or may not agree with Clyburn’s politics. But the wisdom of this statement by Clyburn is demonstrably true.

Bank stocks plunge, trading halted temporarily as turmoil continues

Biden claims: ‘Your deposits will be there when you need them’

By Bob Unruh
Published March 13, 2023 at 1:19pm

America’s banking industry remained in turmoil on Monday after two large banking corporations were shut down late last week and over the weekend – a proximate result of the 2020 presidential election.

The Gateway Pundit was reporting that trading at more than 30 banks was halted, at least temporarily, because of the explosive details of the failures.

That report noted Market Watch was warning, “To gauge the panic-like activity of bank investors in the wake of the recent failures of SVB Financial Group’s SIVB, Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank SBNY, -22.87%, investors can check out the Nasdaq’s ‘Current Trading Halts’ page. Multiple banks have had their stock halted for volatility, some more than once, since the opening bell. Among some of those that have already been halted at least twice, shares of Western Alliance Bancorp WAL, -82.55% plummeted 78.2%, Regions Financial Corp. RF, -7.54% sank 15.6%, First Republic Bank FRC, -77.82% plunged 65.5%, Comerica Inc. CMA, -38.51% tumbled 39.4% and PacWest Bancorp. PACW, -53.44% took a 47.7% dive. The selloffs come as the S&P 500 SPX, -0.11% inched up 0.1%, erasing an earlier drop of as much as 1.4%.”

It’s likely because Barack Obama, back in the day when he was imposing his ideological agenda on America, stated, “Elections have consequences.”

Joe Biden’s election in 2020 allowed his all-out attack on America’s energy independence, its ability to generate revenue selling oil and natural gas, and other factors like a wide-open southern border that allowed millions of illegal aliens to enter. Biden also has engineered the spending of trillions of dollars – pushing the nation’s debt to never-before-seen levels.

The result was inflation – which maxed out at 9.1% last summer and still remains extraordinarily high.

That triggered the Federal Reserve’s many repeated decisions to raise interest rates hugely – in its attempts to slow down that inflation.

That resulted in the shutdowns of a couple of banks whose officials had left their assets imbalanced – heavily into mortgages as those interest rates were exploding.

The New York Post cited the 70% plunge in shares of First Republican Bank in pre-market Monday trading before those sales were halted.

That happened just as feds assumed control of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank.

The Post said, “Trading was halted despite President Biden addressing the burgeoning crisis.” He said the nation’s banking system is “safe” and immediately called for more regulations.

“Americans can have confidence that the banking system is safe. Your deposits will be there when you need them,” he said.

Among other troubled organizations were Western Alliance, PacWest Bancorp, Charles Schwab and more.

Even so, the Dow Jones Industrial Averages rose more than 200 points mid-day.

A third bank, Signature Bank, was closed by the state of New York just days earlier, but it was for unrelated reasons.

According to Yahoo Finance, the stock price rise followed “aggressive” work to prevent further bank failures.

The report said, “U.S. stocks got smoked on Friday, rounding out their worst week so far this year. Federal regulators closed tech-focused lender Silicon Valley Bank in the biggest U.S. bank failure since the financial crisis in 2008.”

Biden’s messaging on Monday claimed “no losses will be borne by taxpayers.” But he also said customers all would be protected.

In fact, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Fed Chair Jerome Powell and FDIC Chairman Martin J. Gruenberg announced that depositors of the failed Silicon Valley Bank would be able to access all their money starting Monday.

The report also predicted, “Economic releases will dominate the conversation this week as Wall Street pays attention to two data prints as the next Federal Reserve’s meeting rapidly approaches. At the same time, investors will be glued to the latest headlines over the collapse of SVB Financial Group and the implications for the banking sector.”

One of the questions to be answered is whether the Fed sill continue raising interest rates to extraordinary heights. ##


Part I B) From the Daily Torch to MHProNews:

Down the Rabbit Hole: The Fed just guaranteed $230 billion of uninsured deposits at SVB Bank and Signature Bank. There are $1 trillion of uninsured deposits out of $20 trillion nationwide.

By Robert Romano

RobertRomanoPhotoDailyTorchLogoAmid a spectacular banking crash over the weekend, the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury have intervened to guarantee $230.6 billion of uninsured deposits at Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) totaling $151.6 billion in California and Signature Bank in New York totaling $79 billion.

It goes without saying this is a terrible precedent. There are $20.8 trillion of  checkable and time and savings deposits of which $1 trillion is said to be uninsured—that is, those in accounts above the statutory $250,000 limit for Federal Deposit Insurance—in U.S. affiliated banks as of March 9, according to the latest data compiled by the Federal Reserve.

Are the Fed and Treasury planning on guaranteeing all of those deposits, too? Because that’s the door they just opened, without any vote in Congress, utilizing authority from the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial takeover legislation, in particular, 12 U.S. Code Section 5463, “Designation of systemic importance,” which provides that the “Financial Stability Oversight Council… on a nondelegable basis and by a vote of not fewer than ⅔ of members then serving, including an affirmative vote by the Chairperson of the Council, shall designate those financial market utilities or payment, clearing, or settlement activities that the Council determines are, or are likely to become, systemically important.”

This is exactly what Americans for Limited Government warned would happen back in 2010 in a backgrounder on the Dodd-Frank financial legislation I authored, “Down a Rabbit Hole: The Threat Posed by the Dodd Bill to the Private Sector,” which stated, “the Fed and Treasury Secretary would… have the power to determine which companies fall under the terms of the legislation, and which do not, depending on which activities they together determine to be financial in nature, or incidental thereto. Because of the broad authorities involved, any company or institution in the entire country could be deemed ‘financial’ in nature and subject to seizure by the FDIC because it might default at some point in the future.”

Now, SVB Bank and Signature Bank will be “resolved” by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), according to the March 12 joint statement by the U.S. Treasury, Federal Reserve and the FDIC: “After receiving a recommendation from the boards of the FDIC and the Federal Reserve, and consulting with the President, Secretary Yellen approved actions enabling the FDIC to complete its resolution of Silicon Valley Bank, Santa Clara, California, in a manner that fully protects all depositors. Depositors will have access to all of their money starting Monday, March 13. No losses associated with the resolution of Silicon Valley Bank will be borne by the taxpayer. We are also announcing a similar systemic risk exception for Signature Bank, New York, New York, which was closed today by its state chartering authority. All depositors of this institution will be made whole.”

The statement added, “As with the resolution of Silicon Valley Bank, no losses will be borne by the taxpayer. Shareholders and certain unsecured debtholders will not be protected. Senior management has also been removed. Any losses to the Deposit Insurance Fund to support uninsured depositors will be recovered by a special assessment on banks, as required by law.”

So, the losses will not be borne by taxpayers via votes in Congress, but by “a special assessment on banks, as required by law.” Those assessments under Dodd-Frank come to institutions with $50 billion or more of assets, you know, the ones you have your own savings and investments currently parked at.

What will happen is what always happens when costs on businesses go up—such as when the Federal Reserve hikes interest rates on banks as has become necessary to cool down inflation—they will be passed on to customers via higher fees and higher interest rates on loans.

So, Congress won’t get the bill, but you will. As if getting charged by private financial institutions to pay for socializing the risk of these bailouts makes it any better. At least you can vote a member of Congress out of office when they raise your taxes.

In this case, if you all try to move your assets to a different bank or your mattress, you’ll likely only be contributing to the problem, and if you choose another financial institution, invariably you’ll end up paying the same fees and higher rates. There is no escape under the law. You’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.

On one hand, it is possible that for the duration of the imminent recession—of which bank failures are almost certainly yet another red flag—that the SVB Bank and Signature Bank failures were the only systemic risks that were posed. But now, that the door is open, other institutions, likely even larger ones, could be seeking additional ways to shore up their own balance sheets as depositors are almost assuredly spooked—especially at institutions that were overexposed to areas such as cryptocurrency, which have been down amid continued U.S. dollar strength.

In addition, financial institutions that bought U.S. treasuries when interest rates were low appear to have about $620 billion of unrealized losses after interest rates have risen, according to the FDIC.

The danger are that the assessments made under Dodd-Frank would not be nearly enough to forestall a much larger bank run that would threaten the larger institutions.

Unfortunately, under Dodd-Frank, there is no theoretical limit to which financial and non-financial companies will be deemed systemically important in the new 2023 financial crisis. By opening up the Fed’s unlimited capacity to create reserves and credit windows—it just created the so-called Bank Term Funding Program—the entire $20.8 trillion is now on the table, including the $1 trillion of uninsured deposits, thanks to the Federal Reserve and Treasury’s determination to guarantee just 1.1 percent of it to politically favored financial institutions.

We are fully down the rabbit hole now. Curiouser and curiouser! ##

Part II Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

Before jumping into the analysis of the above, per CNBC, one potential bright spot in the wake of the new banking crisis.

  • QuoteMarksLeftSideThe average rate on the popular 30-year fixed mortgage dropped to 6.57% on Monday, according to Mortgage News Daily.
  • If rates continue to drop now, buyers could return to the housing market once again.
  • “This mini banking crisis has to drive a change in consumer behavior in order to have a lasting positive impact on rates. It’s still all about inflation,” said Matthew Graham, chief operating officer at Mortgage News Daily.

That noted, the massive Dodd-Frank legislation enacted during the Obama-Biden Administration was supposed to prevent the type of financial crisis that is currently developing.

Ironically, there is evidence that Barney Frank, who that Obama-era legislation was partially named after, sat on the board of one of the banks that has now been closed.


Per right-leaning Breitbart which cited the left-leaning L.A. Times, the following.

QuoteMarksLeftSideIn 2009, Breitbart News editor-at-large Joel Pollak confronted Frank, who was then the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, asking if he shared any responsibility for the global financial meltdown of 2008.

“Frank, perhaps defensive over charges that he fought Bush administration efforts to reign in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae in 2001, dismissed the question as ‘a right-wing attack,’ and challenged the student to make clear what else a Democratic congressman from Massachusetts might have done to prevent the crisis. Per the Los Angeles Times:

Frank, perhaps defensive over charges that he fought Bush administration efforts to reign in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae in 2001, dismissed the question as ‘a right-wing attack,’ and challenged the student to make clear what else a Democratic congressman from Massachusetts might have done to prevent the crisis.

The student, Joel Pollak, replied that perhaps Frank could have done more to patrol executive bonuses to AIG and other giants bailed out with $700 billion in taxpayer funds. The exchange got pretty heated — another student came to Pollak’s rescue, imploring Frank not to label the student as a conservative but to answer his question.

But Frank insisted that he had not been chairman of the committee before 2007, and was hardly to blame for policies before that.

This Sep 8, 2008 video from CBS News is a refresher on some factors that led to the previous financial meltdown. 





Beyond the apparent ironies and tragedies noted above, MHProNews has published several articles about the concerns raised about the problems associated with ‘woke’ and ESG connected investing. As the reports noted indicate, some are pointing the finger at those being among the factors that have contributed to the SVB-Signature and related financial woes.

The regulatory system in this nation has numerous examples of high-profile failures. The manipulation of that system has long ago created a ‘heads I win, tails you lose’ economy. Giants can bet big, lose big, and get ‘protected.’

MHProNews spotlights granular issues in manufactured housing, but also takes a periodic look at macro issues too. This is to set the concerns of our industry into a broader context. In order to solve our industry’s problems, good existing laws must be properly enforced. There is no
need to wait years for legislation that in the past has often led to little or no discernable benefit.


Once these notions are understood, ‘mom and pop’ investors, businesses, and employees are better able to understand the threats to their livelihoods.  A big crisis is an opportunity for those with deep pockets.  What happens this time may well be illuminated by what has occurred previously.

The evidence strongly indicates that the pockets of working class, retired, and middle-class Americans are routinely being picked. Those at the top tier routinely escape with little more than a slap on the wrist when compared to the harm that they have done. MHProNews will continue to monitor and report as deemed appropriate on this latest financial-economic issue. Stay tuned.
