...it is important to know that the so called 'stress test' is not so much about to determine the total capital adequacy for banks, but finding out just how much capital is needed to get the ZOOMBIES through year end 2009;

...no amount of liquidity can restore the MBS securitization markets, responsible for ~ 50% of credit in these markets in the old days, as long as residential and commercial real estate prices are still crashing!!
-banks are simply not underwirting new paper- ...and unless they start, the economic meltdown will continue...
