Is the NCUA Clueless? Or Is It Seeking to Kill Off the Corporates?

Cooke, Sarah Snell
March 2010
Credit Union Times;3/17/2010, Vol. 21 Issue 11, p4
The author reflects on the impact of rules for corporate credit unions (CUs) proposed by the U.S. National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) on all CUs in the country. She asserts that the thrust of this proposal is capital ratios it requires for corporate CUs to be capitalized. She argues that this proposal is a manifestation that NCUA has no idea about how financial institutions they regulate run.
