How big could a new RTC be to remain comparable to the old RTC?

When the Resolution Trust Corporation was created in 1989, nominal GDP was about 40 percent of what it is currently. That RTC took over about $400 billion in assets. So a current RTC could take over around $ 1 trillion and would be the same relative to the economy as the old RTC.

We did manage to get through the early 90s with a fairly mild recession.
