Becoming the Bank / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Both the mainstream and alternative media spend a good amount of time reporting on the excesses of Wall Street, which range from extremely disproportionate levels of compensation to blatantly criminal practices. Whether we are talking about Goldman Sachs defrauding and front-running clients or former New Jersey governor and MF Global CEO Jon Corzine illegally transferring client funds to JP Morgan, there is a certain air of "so whatness" to the entire discussion. How extensive are these occurrences and why should we care?

WALL STREET CONFIDENCE TRICK: How "Interest Rate Swaps" Are Bankrupting Local Governments / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFar from reducing risk, derivatives increase risk, often with catastrophic results.     Derivatives expert Satyajit Das, Extreme Money (2011)

The “toxic culture of greed” on Wall Street was highlighted again last week, when Greg Smith went public with his resignation from Goldman Sachs in a scathing oped published in the New York Times.  In other recent eyebrow-raisers, LIBOR rates—the benchmark interest rates involved in interest rate swaps—were shown to be manipulated by the banks that would have to pay up; and the objectivity of the ISDA (International Swaps and Derivatives Association) was called into question, when a 50% haircut for creditors was not declared a “default” requiring counterparties to pay on credit default swaps on Greek sovereign debt.

What The End Result of Fed’s Cancerous Policies Will Be / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday I noted that the “addict/ dealer” metaphor for the Fed’s intervention in the markets was in fact not accurate and that the Fed’s actions would be more appropriately described as permitted cancerous beliefs to spread throughout the financial system, thereby killing Democratic Capitalism which is the basis of the capital markets.

Today I’m going to explain what the “final outcome” for this process will be. The short version is what happens to a cancer patient who allows the disease to spread unchecked (death).

Wall Street Toxic Culture of Avarice and Fraud / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreg Smith, an executive director at Goldman Sachs, announced his resignation Wednesday in an op-ed piece in the New York Times, denouncing the bank's “toxic” culture of avarice and fraud.

Smith headed the firm’s United States equity derivatives business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In his column, entitled “Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs,” he describes a corporate environment that encourages and rewards big short-term returns gained through the bilking of clients and the general public. “It makes me ill how callously people talk about ripping their clients off,” he writes.

The Global Financial Crisis is a Global Human Rights Crisis / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJournalists for the most part report what they know and hope that someone pays attention. With so many media outlets, brands, bloggers and sloggers out there, it is rare for challenging ideas to touch a larger nerve or get visibility beyond fragmented followings.

The idea of winning global attention is a far off dream unless you break the biggest exclusive or win the first interview with, say, Jesus on his return to earth. (And that could be ignored if your name isn’t Oprah, etc.)

Financial Crisis 2012, Why Central Bank Liquidity is No Longer Enough / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince Lehman's failure in 2008, the name of the game has been to paper over deeply-rooted solvency issues in large institutions/countries with cheap liquidity. What helped keep markets afloat more than the liquidity itself, though, was the perception by the wealthiest segments of society that their solvency issues were being mitigated or resolved with a combination of loose fiscal/monetary policy and time. That perception was a more powerful and addicitng drug than the actual liquidity or promises of liquidity in the future.

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMF Global's October 2011 bankruptcy was the eighth largest bankruptcy by assets in the United States. James Giddens, the bankruptcy trustee, issued a press release on February 6 stating that his investigation found that money from customer accounts that was supposed to be segregated was improperly used to fund MF Global's daily activities. Improper transfers of customer money occurred regularly in amounts under $50 million before MF Global's bankruptcy. MF Global wasn't caught, because it put the money back before customers knew it was missing.

Banker Occupied Europe and America / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoney power rules. Across Europe and America, governments follow banker diktats. They demand economies and people suffer to assure they're paid.

Money power in private hands and democracy can't co-exist. It buys what it wants at the expense of government of, by and for the people. It never was and isn't now.

Central Banks Financial Terrorism / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy decree, by the privately owned Federal Reserve, zero interest rates are here to stay. You do not get to borrow at those rates, only the member banks do. In the latest currency swap (loan) from the Fed to the ECB, European Central Bank, as we noted in previous issues over the last two months, that Europe has been forced to join the Anglo-American system. The system of zero interest rates and the continual creation of money and credit. Due to the Fed’s ability to create endless supplies of money and credit it eventually took over the control of ECB and European monetary policy. These policies starkly point out the zero interest rates and monetary policy of endless money creation is the path to be taken probably by all in the system to lesser or greater degrees. That means no savings and that leaves speculation and the purchase of gold and silver related assets.

Money Market Funds Are in the Fight of Their Lives / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Money market funds aren't exactly the safe-haven investments they're cracked up to be.

In September 2008, when Lehman Brothers failed, money market investors fled funds in droves, exposing investors and capital markets across the globe to huge systemic risks.

Now, to better safeguard investors and prevent the commercial paper market from shutting down in future crises, SEC chairwoman Mary Schapiro is proposing to re-make the money market mutual fund industry in the image of banks.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday we dive into Part 2 of Woody Brock’s notes from his new book, American Gridlock ( www.amazon.com/gridlock). He looks at what we can do in the future to prevent another crisis like we had in 2008, why we need to change, how we bargain with China (will be very controversial, in China at least!), what capitalism really is, and then he addresses the thorny issue of what it means to distribute wealth fairly. What can be said to those concerned with the top 1% of the population owning a grossly disproportionate share of the nation’s wealth?

Double Liability for Bank Shareholders, Officers and Directors / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost people don't realize that for about 75 years after Civil War, in the United States, a bank's officers, directors and shareholders had personal liability in excess of the value of their shares.  If a bank were to be declared insolvent by the regulator, they were required to make up the shortfall in an insolvency with their personal assets.  This tends to focus the attention of the bankers to be more responsible in terms of their lending and other business practices and provides an automatic way to self-regulate.  When you have no personal responsibility, other than maybe not getting a bonus next year, why not take big chance for a bigger personal payout?  There is no downside for bankers with today's limited liability and the public is now stuck with these losses because the bankers have shifted their responsibility to the public.

Banking Crisis 2012 "Robo-Signing" of Foreclosure Affidavits Just Tip of Iceberg / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: What may be good news for delinquent credit card holders may also be really bad news for banks.

It turns out the "robo-signing" of foreclosure affidavits is just the tip of the iceberg.

In what one judge called "robo-testimony," falsely attested-to statements by bank document custodians have been submitted in courts around the country by banks trying to win judgments against delinquent credit card debtors.
