Thoughts of IndyMac

This is exactly why I scoffed and avoided any bank offering a rate greater than the rate HSBC has been offering for their online savings accounts. It was pure asset gathering, as these institutions, in their race to the bottom, were trying to generate enough lendable capital to generate enough revenue to offset the risk of failure. As if there was enough time for such machinations to work! E*Trade Bank and Capital One come to mind as well, along with IndyMac.
