America is on a Banking Delayed-action Mine

Since 2009, it has been compulsory for all major US banks to pass an exam called a stress test. The test checks the banks’ ability to withstand sudden changes in economic and financial conditions.

Such big-name banks were categorized as «untouchables», «sacred cows» which were destined to exist forever. And that is not surprising; the demise of any one of the «sacred cows» of the banking world could plunge not only one country, but the entire world into the depths of crisis. After all, the «sacred cows» existed outside of the so-called market economy, with its fierce competition, high risks, bankruptcies and defaults.
