Public Finances and the Recapitalisation of the Banking Sector

Scott Rankin and Rossa White at Davy Research have a new quantitative analysis on what the banking crisis may cost in terms of (i) total system losses and (ii) re-cap costs (taking into account operating profits, capital ratios desired by govt etc.) and (iii) the % of that re-cap cost that may come from the government. They also look at how much of our long-term funding has been successfully done ytd and estimate the trajectory for government debt.
