Banking Regulators Brace for Social Chaos

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency is a branch of the Treasury Department that “charters, regulates, and supervises all national banks and federal savings associations as well as federal branches and agencies of foreign banks.” It recently issued a solicitation for “survival kits” (see below).

It makes you wonder. Do they know something the rest of us don’t? Is the banking system getting close to imploding and unleashing panic in the streets? Or are OCC officials worried about a heightened risk of a terrorist attack?

In any event, the survival kits they want bureaucrats to have are a decent model for a basic survival kit you might assemble for yourself. You could easily fit all these items in your car or in a small storage space at work.
