Ken Griffin, founding father of the Citadel hedge fund, says the US central financial institution’s rescue package deal for Silicon Valley Financial institution reveals that American capitalism is “breaking down earlier than our eyes”.

Griffin instructed the Monetary Occasions that US taxpayers shouldn’t need to bail out institutional traders, following the choice by the Fed to intervene to stop contagion all through the banking sector following the collapse of Santa Clara-based SVB.

“The US is meant to be a capitalist economic system, and that’s breaking down earlier than our eyes,” he mentioned in an interview. “There’s been a lack of monetary self-discipline with the federal government bailing out depositors in full.”
