This Paper argues for a sort of Gorton/Ricks hybrid approach to panic-proofing, whereby the federal government (1) insures the very-short-term repo obligations of the SIFIs (while also ensuring the high-quality of the collateral under those repo agreements) and (2) limits the exposure levels of the SIFIs to all other forms of uninsured runnable debt.
