Bacon, Bad Banks and Risk Insurance

This post was written by Karl Whelan @The Irish Economy

Today’s Irish Times reports that the government has hired Peter Bacon

to assess the possibility of creating a “bad bank” or risk insurance scheme to take so-called toxic debts off the banks’ balance sheets in a bid to free up new lending.

I know I’m at risk of sounding like a broken record on this topic but, given its importance, I’ll add my latest two cents on this. I’m not in favour of either this form of “bad bank” or a risk insurance scheme. Link to article
