Haven't we known that was inevitable upon reemergence from Covid? The economy shuts down, supply chain issues, etc. led to inflation and the Feds are trying to cool it by raising interest rates. Is that basically what the article says?

FDIC probably knows more than I do about these things. I don’t even know how to properly contextualize this information. but that’s the beauty of raw numbers and  charts. even I can see that certain things are way out of wack.

The point being we are in “uncharted territory” to use a cliche phrase when it comes to the economy.  There’s lots of moving parts beyond just the interest rate / housing market at play.

This is way out of my field, but paper losses only matter if financial institutions need to start selling securities to make up for a money shortfall elsewhere. Unless someone more savvy in the industry can chime in, my impression is that most of the major players in finance are in strong financial positions right now and won't need to fire-sale securities anytime soon, barring some other insane crisis.  Recession? Sure. Free fall ala 2008? That seems more far-fetched.
