National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow on Tuesday evening announced the total coronavirus relief package will come to around $6 trillion with $2 trillion in "direct assistance" to Main Street and "roughly $4 trillion in Federal Reserve lending power" for Wall Street.
CNS News reports:
"So, the total package here comes to roughly $6 trillion: $2 trillion direct assistance, roughly $4 trillion in Federal Reserve lending power," said Kudlow at a White House briefing.A few hours later, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation released a video telling the public to "forget the mattress" amidst the coronavirus pandemic and keep their money in an "FDIC-insured bank where it's safe and sound."
"The last thing you should be doing is pulling your money out of the banks now, thinking that it's going to be safer someplace else," FDIC Chairman Jelena McWilliams said. "You don't want to be walking around with large wads of cash and you certainly don't want to be hoarding cash in your mattress."
"It didn't pan out well for so many people," she said, without citing any such cases.
Earlier this month, the Federal Reserve reduced interest rates to zero, pumped $1.5 trillion in short-term loans into Wall Street and reduced reserve requirement ratios to "zero percent."
