The Burying of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Report / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndre Damon writes: Late last month, the US Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission issued the first official report on the causes of the 2008 financial meltdown.

The report is devastating. The commission interviewed over 700 witnesses, held 19 days of public hearings, and investigated millions of documents. Based on this research, it gives a fairly accurate picture of the fraud and criminality that led to the greatest financial catastrophe since the Great Depression.

How the SEC stamped out Meaningful Financial Reform / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Make no mistake: The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is a slippery political football.

But this early attempt at reform is actually just the kickoff for a political skirmish that will pit legislators, lobbyists and other hired guns against one another on the post-financial-crisis gridiron.

Why Wall Street Bonuses Will Cost Us All in the Long Run / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Wall Street firms may not be reaping the record-breaking revenues of 2004-2007, but they're paying themselves the lofty bonuses of that lavish era - and they're doing it at our expense and with the government's blessing.

Wall Street's pay packages, including bonuses, are set to total 4% more in 2010 than in the already record year of 2009, The Wall Street Journal recently reported.

Swiss Finish Sets New Standard for Global Bank Regulation / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Global_Intel_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleINCIDENT: The traditional Swiss finishing school taught young women etiquette and social graces, but international bank regulators are talking about something much tougher when they refer to a "Swiss finish" for global banks.

Just how tough became clear last week, 4 October, when a Swiss commission proposed that its two giant banks, UBS and Credit Suisse, be subjected to capital requirements of up to 19%, nearly three times as tough as the 7% capital-to-assets ratio recently suggested by the Basel Banking Committee as a minimum global standard.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHooray, Elizabeth Warren is to become a Special Assistant to President Obama in charge of setting up the Consumer Protection Bureau that she conceived. Alas, it is not to be the independent agency she wanted but a bureau within the Federal Reserve Bank, a branch of government that is really run by big banks which and did virtually nothing to protect consumers when they needed help the most.

Banks Catch a Break with Long Timeline for Implementing Basel III Regulations / Companies / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: Global regulators on Sunday agreed on new banking capital requirements - known as Basel III - that were much less severe than expected, boosting global financial stocks as investors were optimistic about banks' ability to comply.

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision agreed on new rules that will more than triple capital requirements to give banks a bigger cushion against losses. Banks will have to raise the amount of common equity they hold to 7% of assets, up from 2%.

U.S. Financial Reform Bill is 2300 Pages of Gobbledygook / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWorrying that their friends on Wall Street are liable to blow themselves up any day with complex financial products and strategies, Congress has passed and Obama has signed 2,300-plus pages of financial reform that provides "an architecture reflective of the 21st century in which we live, but also one that would rebuild that trust and confidence," claims Senator Christopher Dodd who was the lead sausage grinder on the senate version of the bill.

Dean Baker: Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform Was Doomed From the Start / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI thought this interview with Dean Baker was interesting. I obviously do not agree with everything that he says, especially regarding the deficits and the attitude of the markets towards them. The US markets are far removed from being efficient mechanisms of capital allocation these days, and as such are unreliable indicators of just about everything except the latest trading fads and speculative excess.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs Anyone Really Capable Of Fixing Our Many Deeper Crises?

Progress is, as we have seen, “stalled” in Haiti six months after an earthquake that struck with the impact of a nuclear bomb. A country, we are told, that is trapped in its past actually may exemplify a more frightening future---a world whose institutions, agencies, governments and corporations are sinking in a swamp of their own making, unable and perhaps unwilling to repair catastrophic crises that are morphing into each other.

In his most recent essay titled Building a New American Political Economy, excerpted below, he spends quite a few words in taking Paul Krugman and the stimulus crowd to task, or more accurately, out to the woodshed for what we used to call a 'proper thrashing.'

Economic Austerity or Stimulus Without Significant Reform Is Madness / Economics / Market Regulation

By: Jesse

The economy will not 'cure itself' through benign neglect and liquidationism, because it did not get this way by itself. It did not suffer an accident, or an act of God. This is an unfortunate application of the principle of human healing after an injury to the economy.
