North American Morning Briefing: Another Big Fed -2-

09/19/2022 | 05:35am EST

Natural-gas prices have more than doubled this year because of a global supply shortage made worse by the war in Ukraine, and they are expected to remain elevated for months as fuel is needed to light and heat homes during the winter. The supply crunch has made it substantially more expensive for utilities to purchase or produce power, and those costs are being passed on to customers.

WASHINGTON-A group of President Biden-appointed bank regulators are considering new rules to require large regional banks to add to financial cushions that could be called on in times of crisis.

The steps under consideration include requirements that the regional firms raise long-term debt that can help absorb losses in case of their own insolvency, according to three people familiar with the matter, extending a slimmed-down version of requirements that at present apply only to the largest U.S. megabanks.

Climbing Interest Rates Fuel Stablecoin War as Binance Makes Move on Rivals

The battle for the stablecoin market is heating up as interest rates continue to rise and the largest players jostle for market share.

Binance, the world's largest crypto exchange, said it would automatically convert users' deposits of several rival stablecoins into its own stablecoin, Binance USD, starting this month. Analysts say Binance's decision could escalate the rivalries among the largest stablecoin players, such as Tether and Circle, and generate additional revenue for Binance as the market cap of its stablecoin grows.

Biden Calls Covid-19 Pandemic 'Over,' Says U.S. Troops Could Defend Taiwan

WASHINGTON-President Biden said the Covid-19 pandemic was over, while reiterating comments that U.S. troops could defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion, during a televised interview that addressed questions about whether he would seek a second term.

"The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with Covid," Mr. Biden said in an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" airing Sunday. "We're still doing a lot of work on it ... but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one's wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it's changing."
