More on Fed stress tests: The previously discussed conditions are what's known as the "Severely Adverse Scenario." There's also the "Adverse Scenario" and the "Baseline." The 19 largest banks under review are far better capitalized than 3 years ago, carrying nearly double the buffer (on roughly the same asset base). It looks like more returns of capital are coming.

    Time to loan more of their 'capitalization' and 'buffer' to under qualified minority voters. It's only fair that they get their "fair share".
