The country's 19 largest banks were ordered to run stress tests against a scenario that reportedly included renewed recession with unemployment above 11%, even though the Fed is decidedly not expecting an economic slump.

    The previous stress tests were one of the most transparent and
    valuable economic analyses to come in the past 10 years. They were
    subject to ridicule and derision by doomsters but anybody with an
    open mind should have studied them to really see if the banking
    system was solvent. I have found them an excellent way to measure
    capital adequacy and loan stresses. Too bad this one will not be
    open but I am sure naysayers will come and find something to complain about.

    If you have a stress test that has a recession as one of its parameters what do you think inflation would be ???
