The failure of two U.S. midsize banks has led to new pressure on Credit Suisse, the long-troubled international banking giant; its stock price fell 20% yesterday, dragging down major indexes. The pan-European Stoxx 600 index fell 2%, as did the Dow-Jones Industrials; the Nasdaq fell by 1% as the company announced “material weakness” in its financial reporting. “Credit Suisse is not just a Swiss problem but a global one,” said Andrew Kenningham, chief Europe economist with Capital Economics.
