What does Bank Recapitalization actually mean?

A good primer from Uwe Reinhardt in the ny times:

Uwe E. Reinhardt: What Does 'Recapitalizing Banks' Actually Mean? - NYTimes.com

He explains banks balance sheets and what happened to them in the time leading up to & after the financial crisis, and what it means to recapitalize the banks. This is the first in a series of articles that he says he'll write.

It means that it can be very painful if not fatal for a bank's current stockholders.

Great article. So often when I read columnists who opine on financials matters, I think that have no clue about how banks work. Mr. Reinhardt undoubtedly has forgetten more about banking than I'll ever know.
