(Newser) – An “evaluation process” following banks’ stress tests will lead to the sacking of some execs, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. chair Sheila Bair tells Bloomberg. “Management needs to be evaluated,” she noted. “Have they been doing a good job? Are there people who can do a better job?” Ten banks have been ordered to raise $74.6 billion; an “evaluation process” is “part of the capital plan,” Bair said.
