The Case Against Greenspan and Bernanke / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs there enough evidence to indict Ben Bernanke and Alan Greenspan on charges that they aided and abetted the banks and other financial institutions in the sale of fraudulent loans to investors?

That depends on whether there is sufficient proof to show whether the two men KNEW that the nation's lenders were engaged in large-scale predatory lending and chose to do nothing. As we'll see, both Greenspan and Bernanke were warned repeatedly about the mortgage/derivatives scam by credible professionals and industry regulators, but failed to act.

Geithner's New York Federal Reserve Pressured AIG to Delay Disclosures / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI wrote a few times in 2008 and early 2009 that as historic and mind bending the times we were living through then were, that when all the details of what was happening behind the scenes leaked out in the coming years ... that's where the truly fascinating information would be found.  How short are memories are - all the furor over the direct handout to investment (and other) banks the world over, led by our friends at Goldman Sachs (GS) via AIG swap agreements - is but a distant memory.

How the Financial Sector Servant Became a Predator / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam K. Black writes: Financial Systems Five Fatal Flaws

What exactly is the function of the financial sector in our society? Simply this: Its sole function is supplying capital efficiently to aid the real economy. The financial sector is a tool to help those that make real tools, not an end in itself. But five fatal flaws in the financial sector's current structure have created a monster that drains the real economy, promotes fraud and corruption, threatens democracy, and causes recurrent, intensifying crises.

Goldman’s Undisclosed Role in AIG’s Distress / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGoldman wasn’t the only contributor to the systemic risk that nearly toppled the global financial markets, but it was the key contributor to the systemic risk posed by AIG’s near bankruptcy. When it came to the credit derivatives American International Group, Inc. (AIG) was required to mark‐to‐market, Goldman was the 800‐pound gorilla. Calls for billions of dollars in collateral pushed AIG to the edge of disaster. The entire financial system was imperiled, and Goldman Sachs would have been exposed to billions in devastating losses.1

Goldman’s Lies of Omission on AIG Implosion / Companies / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my opinion, David Viniar’s (CFO of Goldman Sachs) comments in the fall of 2008 were a lie (see endnote), and for that matter, Lloyd Blankfein’s (CEO of Goldman Sachs) later comments to the Wall Street Journal were disingenuous. In the context of what was happening near the time of AIG’s implosion, the key question was “What is going on between Goldman and AIG?” Their rhetoric surrounding this issue is a deft dodge. They may claim they didn’t “technically” lie, but Goldman’s business exposure to AIG posed both credit risk and reputation risk. They seem to overlook elements of the former and put insufficient value on the latter.

By: Richard_Karn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChapter 2:           “Nobody’s right, when everybody’s wrong”

Chapter 1 Here : “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”

Arguably more effective than the military adventurism that dominates the headlines, what amounts to American cultural imperialism has subtly seduced large swathes of the world, and it has not been limited simply to a taste for fast food, film, and fashion.  The far more addictive aspect has been the successful overseas marketing of the “debt culture” via the financial innovation associated with the securitization (derivative) markets, which at $27 trillion has constituted the US’ largest export of the 21st century.  This is the realm of the money center banks. 1
