I know liquidation will never happen as our government seems intent on doing as little as possible to upset the old order, but might the financial system heal more quickly if these two zombie banks were liquidated? My thinking was that if the banks were liquidated, that the former depositors would have to put their money somewhere else. Hundreds of billions of dollars would immediately be given to the remaining strong and well managed banks, helping strengthen the remaining banks further. The key would be to liquidate in orderly way so as not to panic depositors at other institutions. Perhaps this is an impossible task.
